You'll be fine, relax, if there was any water that go on it it will evaporate out, but if the bondo didn't have time to set and the water got under it, that could be a problem, but just relax, you'll be fine.

Bondo is hydroscopic(it absorbs water). Bondo works better if applied over epoxy primer vs. bare steel, this is what PPG recommends.

If you primed the areas w/epoxy primer where the bondo was applied you should be fine, if you did not I would remove a small section of the bondo down to bare metal & see if there is any rust that has started. Also if you used bondo w/fiberglass in it(bondo glass) you should be fine.....Don

I'm not the best at anything, but I thank you for the kind remarks. I am here to help as much as I can. Don is right, but with just the light sprinkle that there was and at the rate of the chemical reaction (bondo heating up) and the sun you will be fine. Don is completely correct at any rate. I was just quicker on the draw this time.
