Okay, I welded in a plate box and shaved the tailgate handle 2 weeks ago. Now the area where the handle was has a definate crack around the filler plate. It looks like the bondo broke! How and why did this happen? It cracked the night where it went from 60 to 30 degrees in like 4 hours. Could that have been part of the problem?

:02redxbla It sounds like maybe either the bondo wasn't holding onto the panel because of sanding. sand it with 40-80 grit sand paper. or if the bondo was exposed (wasn't primed) then water can exsorb into bondo and make it loose adhesion.
