you can skip this part, these are the pics of all the 11 patches (well minus one tiny little square one, I missed one and had to make it last minute as I was glueing them on - hey full disclosure)

I give you the 11 ... [oops] 10 patches

for sanity reasons, I decided to double up with some patches so that one patch could span / cover two holes

anybody still with me, ok good, then it was time to make a mess

not sure if using a brush is the most efficient / effective means of spreading this JB Goop but maybe it will work

using a paper towel in there because the metal is not flat its a bit convex

and then we let it set, we wait, and we wait

That's it for today, wondering if I should move this contraption in the garage for the night, or not mess with it and leave it outside over night - gonna be 56*F tonight - but shoot rain tomorrow

so it took 6 hours to set and 24 hours to cure, so I removed the C clamps and magnets after 24 hours - trust me the waiting was the hardest part, going to bondo the holes next, maybe tomorrow

here is the belly

Don't bondo them... Just use more JB weld and it will cure like metal and look 100x once you've sanded it all down good.

X2 on that...
Bondo will crack at the parting line with the holes. Lab Metal or JB Weld epoxy will not.

Looks great. Cannot wait to see the final product. Been wondering what to do with my dash so you may have just provided the answer.

Gregski, you inspired me! Picked up a donor bed today. I will be using the base, front and wheel wells. My original looks like it was used to haul loose cannon balls. Sorry, about the upside down pics.

so couple of weeks ago I got one of these $20 bucks off Rewards for being a ToolKit member at our local Pick n Pull junkyards

What to spend it on?
