:cool: I dont think you can chrome bondo. Your best bet is doing like OCC and weld everything and grind it down smooth as a baby's ass. Your welds have to be really strong cuz you're gonna grind most of it down to smooth it out. Then make sure you buff it smooth as you can. Just like working with bondo, grind the hell out of the roughest parts with rough paper then go to something finer so you don't have all those swirl marks in it. It is possible, just gotta get bondo out of your head when doing it, leave that in the bucket cuz you ain't gonna be using it ;)

Exactly, do it all metal no bondo at all. If that bike was truely done with no bondo and all metal it would be worth more than a bondo frame, dunno if its worth $500 though cuz if you know a master welder I'm sure it'd be much less

yes it can be done but it ends up being very expensive if it's done right. I have done minor things on custom parts but not a frame. But the frame would not be that hard for me to do.

True dat if anyone could do the frame it would be Lil Deville :thumbsup:

He'd take your house as payment though just don't tell your parents :cool:

J/K

I dunno I'd say do it bondo cuz if you don't have enough money for it do the bondo frame and spend your money on paint ;)
