if you know how to fix that by welding youre way smarter than me. you could fix it with filler and everybody here is only recommending All-metal as it's impervious to water. i just made a new panel by getting this 'glass grating like stuff from a plasterer. they have fine, with like 1/4" squares very pliable, and some really stiff crap. you could probably build a car with this stuff coated with all-metal. mesh, that's the word i'm lookin for. it's blue, any plasterer should have a free peice for you. you dont want to use any filler w/o a mesh backing (to fill a big hole that is). firmly attached first before you start covering it.
hey, you asked if "bondo" could fix it. the answer is yes. is it the right way to do it? well,NO some people think it's a cardinal sin to put even the slightest bit of bondo on a car. they can spend 40 grand having a panel pounder straighten their car. i would if i were you and had your welding skill, take it to someone with a welder you can use, like a school, and fix it the best you can and only use the filler to smooth it out. ;) here's a good rule to follow: always try to fix it with metal first, use filler as just a smoother-outer, or as only a last resort. never put anything over rust, the rust has to preferably be cut out and replaced or neutralized. especially in the area of your windshield. it is like the one spot that i would highly recommend you take it to a body shop!!!!!!
