Bonnet Smoothing

have been looking into getting the bonnet smoothed and remembered people mentioning only getting it done if a plate gets welded over the recess.

I have since been told using some sort of filler will be fine.

Discuss....

Re: Bonnet Smoothing

Everything i read and see on TV says use the least amount of filler as possible. Id want it welded.

Somebody in the bravo section has a smoothed boot but its filled and the filler is pealing away.

So you got an answer full of my opinion.

I thought you would get this kind of trouble also but im informed filler is just as good as welding.

Re: Bonnet Smoothing

It doesn't need welded.

Re: Bonnet Smoothing

you should be able to fibreglass it from the inside, fill the recess with fibreglass, sand flat, skim it with filler and resand it
