new idea... i mite be an idiot!

i recently decided that i want to do exterior camo, similiar to BADKARMA'S. and i think it would look weird with the fender flares on it. SO, i want to take off the fender flares, (one already go ripped off) bondo, sand and paint the little holes, and then cover it all with camo vinyl. would i be able to pull it off??

anyone know where badkarma go his camo wrap from, cant find any camo that is wild with reeds and cattails and leaves everywhere..

Thanks
any imput on how to bondo and do body work would be great

ps. im also going to take the black plastic bump strip off the rockers.

Bondo would be a royal pain to fill all those little holes with. Might have better luck plug welding them, or welding a small plate behind it and grind it smooth.

Just using Bondo on the holes is setting yourself up for an epic failiure later on. It will crack and or fall off and attract moisture from the inside of the fender and rot the fender from the inside out.

As said, get a buddy with a mig welder and just pop a little plug weld in each hole and grind it smooth and only apply filler to the uneven spots.

x2 on that Powerdome Camo. Looks sweet. The tan colour of the truck helps pull it off so well. Would also look good on green too.

You might just be able to fill the entire hole with weld and grind it smooth.

Do not use JB weld
