Bondo welds and rattle can painting? **VIDEO**

So here's a short video I filmed of me doing some bondo work on this aero frame. I had a vision to make the bike look more simple so I removed the unnecessary brake line holders, water bottle holes, and filled the welds. I then painted it Porsche GT3RS green with a rattle can clear that had hardener as well. I know it's nothing too intense like you guys fillet brazing frames from scratch lol but this is my first time building a bike, let alone using bondo haha. Enjoy! Watch in HD! Thanks

Very nicely done. While I appreciate looking at well crafted TIG joints with evenly spaced dimes, the bondo "dressed" joints give a nice clean appearance. I like the GT3 green paint job, too.

Looks good! I hate those ugly-a$$ TIG welds myself.

Were you going for an RWB 911 look? (I guess you'd have Idlers stencils on the tires if so). You built a great-looking bike! Nice work on the weld smoothing and paint.

I loved the first few timid seconds where you must have been thinking "Do I really want to go after that cable stop with an angle grinder?"
