you cant use bondo well you can BUT with as much stress thats put on the engine bay its prone to mess up the right way to do it is to weld new metal in and then grind body work (using as little bondo as possible) i dont own or know how to use a welder it did cross my mind but f it! lol

tucking a bay is easyier than putting suspension or a motor in... thats why i like doing them! they are fun! and about shaving the holes.. why do what the trend is do... just my opinion i would keep the holes... just wait... this tuck is goin to be amazing when iam done.
