Best way to fill trim holes in body?


Recommended Posts

I am taking the Grande trim that was on the edge of the vinyl roof, and leaving it off.  What is the best way to fill the holes that are left?

 

I don't  think  bondo would work... Not sure how to weld them up since some of them I can't get to the back side to put anything..

 

Any suggestions on how to fill these properly? Thanks! Earl

I mig welded the lower chrome trim molding holes on my Mach 1. I placed a piece of copper behind the ones I could get to and the ones I couldn't I just used quick bursts with the welder allowing time for them to cool to prevent warping. After that I ground the welds down and skim coated with filler and finish sander. Hope you this helps. Ryan

+1.  Pretty easy to do with a mig welder.

vikingsandpintos,

 

What are you going to do with the trim? I have someone who is looking to install the vinyl top trim to his coupe.

 

Thanks
