Removing Bondo from a door. Has anyone ever seen this much Bondo on anything? It’s like 1/4 inch thick.

I worked in a body shop my senior year of high school. We had a customer bring a car to us that had been previously repaired. That repair had bondo 3” deep in a very large area in the rear quarter panel just behind the wheel arch.

Also - in my bondo pic, does anyone know what the black stuff is? Looks like a rust inhibitor/primer of some sort. Tough as heck to sand off. Using an Eastwood sander to take off this heavy bondo then going to move to a media blaster. Did not want to use the expensive media on the bondo.

I think that is dark gray/black primer.

Took one of my daughters fly fishing in the Short Bus. It was her first time. If you’ll indulge me a few extra words, there is some significance to the second pic.

The rod she is using was hand made by my grandfather. It was a gift to my dad in 1980. My dad had a flood in his basement a year back and I found it in his basement. The hand tied tapered tippet still had knots that they tied. I had taken it out a few times, but never landed a fish. So what you see there is the first fish that rod has landed in decades and it was done in the hands of the great grand daughter of its maker on her first day fly fishing. All in all, a pretty cool day!
