    I’ve Cost myself a lot of money over the years learning how to do different things like this and making mistakes, but learned from my mistakes and they won’t happen again. It’s good to see that their are others that do the same thing. Nothing wrong with making mistakes, and certainly nothing wrong with learning from them. Good luck with your project, love watching the videos, get a good laugh knowing I’ve been there before.

    Just a tip, don’t stir your filler. It causes pinholes instead use your spreader to fold the filler. Also try not to get your filler onto paint. Glazing putty can be on paint though. I’ve done a similar project before!

    Ryan keep doing what you’re doing. Your doing okay... “GOONZQUAD: There is no such thing as too much body filler” 😂🤣😂

  • Casey02

    Coulda pounded out the low spots from the back with hammer and block of wood, get them close, you really only need 1 coat of the short strand filler to seal the pin holes, shape the rest withlight weight premium body filler, glaze last if you want.

  • Bentley

    I appreciate you trying to learn and do it yourself but a few things for the future...the hole you filled...if you didn’t spray it with rust inhibitor it will keep rusting even under the bondo and it will crack it’s just a matter of time...also shoulda got a hammer and dolly...get that metal where you want it before spreading any bondo...if you can get to the back side of the panel, dolly on lows hammer on highs alternating off and on dolly to move the metal...block sand in criss cross patterns...let the paper do the work...I like your videos, no criticism or shade...glad your putting light on a industry often forgotten about lol

    i didn't look through the comments, but when your welding sheet metal you have to pay attention to the heat your are putting the metal through.. the more heat the more its going to buckle.. spot wield in different areas till you have the whole piece wielding in. they also make a glue , where you cut the area smaller than the panel and with the right tools you make a lip and then glue the panel in wrarpping and the glue is very strong, the metal may tear before the glued area will..

    Use a marker paint inbetwren bondo layers for fine dents and crests u may miss. Dust it black then block sand it. Low spots stay black high spots sand off

  • Blackdiamondf150

    Ryan. Go get you a stud welder. Weld the studs on pull the dents out. You will use a lot less filler and a lot less sanding. There’s an attachment for your existing welder that east wood sells to get that. Also. Grind that hole out and fill it with metal. It’s just going to rust again if you leave it with filler.

  • GarageJunkiesAZ

    That hole filled will crack later because you didn’t get rid of the rust

    If you have smaller rust holes you could use fiber glass sheets and resin. Filling a hole with body filler will likely crack and fall out. Should be able to get fiber glass sheets and resin from anywhere that sells body shop supplies. It's very easy to use.

  • Tv Drift
    Tv Drift

    Even tho now you filled in the hole with bondo and the rust is gone it is still going to come back. It might take days after you paint or months but it’s still going to come back until you fully get rid of it.

  • Buckinchuteranch 1
    Buckinchuteranch 1

    Problem with filling bigger holes and deeper dents with Bondo is the vibration of driving can make it fall off after awhile. So the way you did it is the correct fix.

  • Raptor Dan

    Just do box sides your spending more time doing all the body work then you can put the box side on.. no hate on you but your learning but makes me cringe I did the same thing on my truck with the patch panels and for the time of me messing around getting stuff right and all I wish I wouldve done box sides

    Just a quick tip or two, when sanding the Bondo try to go in a 45° angle otherwise it will leave marks in the body filler, and it could be seen in the paint. Also try to only use one side of the spreader in case there is some Bondo that hasn't been mixed.

    For what you’re doing, do it right, but enjoy learning. This crap is not ok for fixing it up to resell, but to make an old beater look better. I think you’re on the right track. Weld the hole. Knock that filler out.

    Dude this is so cool what your doing, I literally have done everything you have done so far in this series to my 2005 silverado 1500, I am taking notes on this body work your doing because I need to do a cab corner this summer on mine. Cant wait to see the paint color!, Before you put the bed back on I would definitely undercoat the underside of it also.

    This is what I love about your videos Ryan! You don’t cram the whole project into one long 50 minute video with half the steps missing. You do it video by video and explain in step by step ! Thank you for making great unique content. 🙏🏻🤟🏻


    You've gotten further then I have. Bodywork scares the shit out of me. My truck needs a little work before I paint it. Absolutely love this build and can't wait to see more. Don't listen to the haters they all started out learning from their mistakes and you will as well. I think you made it very very clear in this video you don't expect perfect you also said this is a learning experience. Keep up the good content bud

    Hey Ryan if you ever do fill a hole with body filler use some metal screen across the back side of the hole before using the body filler to strengthen it and give it something to grab onto in the middle. Love the Chevy build can’t wait to see it finished.

  • Dan Charron
    Dan Charron

    oh now, the Bondo thing comes from a long time ago. see they would form the whole panel with Bondo. but it would crack and chunk off and then boom everyone is laughing. what he did on this in normal for many home projects. and a magnet would glue to that body. well all but that hole. now I been fixing old trucks and if I had to fill a hole like that I would add something in the whole to make a structure. and mesh tape from drywall would do the trick. I live in the rust belt in Canada. and trust me no point to adding mega cash to a truck that has ran in the salts like we got here. but if you can keep her going for another 3 years before buying a new truck and save them payments of 1000$ a month. why not? heck I calculated my spending on a used truck body rims tires and all and we still less then 7 months of payments. So as I will be running my truck for another 3 years maybe 5. that would be a saving of 50G's and not only that but consider that if you put that on a house. that is a better place to spend cash. "im my Area for my truck same unit would be 54G's. and add tax you are more then 60G's.... so no new truck but no cries. Got new Rims Tires Breaks Tie rods Break and fuel lines all new. and bought a spare truck for its parts encase I needed it.

    When bonding u should run a line of paddy threw the middle of the bondo. And another tip when mixing you should always keep it flat so there is no air in the mix.

      @RYAN MAYER Yea I know alot of people do hide there work and I really love how you dont and you put alot of time an effort to show this is possible to do at your own house.


      Nobody shows you the actual side of things, everybody thinks build go perfect and things are always done correctly! Turns out they’re not! I coulda hid all this and the bed woulda looked 100% when done and nobody knows that how awful of a body patch job I did to get there 💪🏼
