if you are talking about patching the emblem holes with Bondo, good luck with them holding.....best/correct way to fill them in is to weld them....the Bondo wont hold very long....

to weld them up without having to put a plate behind them, hold a piece of brass behind them and weld them full.....weld wont stick to the brass, but it will fill the hole....then smooth....or you could cut out a patch piece and weld it in....


gonna look good finally 1 color...
