Re: autobody 101 ??
I have seen a lot of auto-body fillers trap moisture, or allow it to get behind the filler, which causes it to rust out. Regular Bondo has always done this. I'd recommend a Marine Bondo, it is much tougher, seals against moisture better, and is designed to flex more. Also, did you put a sealant between the two pieces of metal before you rivited them together? If not, it'll rust out. I know this all too well from prior experiences, before I knew how to weld.
