Weird "Growth" in Can of Bondo????

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else seen this???? I cant find anything at all on the internet!

 

Earlier today I was trying to fix a busted up fender on my boy's quad.  I opened a can of Bondo-Glass and inside was crazy looking growths!  A couple were long, thin crystalline-like structures.  Looked just like old-time rock candy. They're "growing" out from the side.  And in the bottom was a "blossum" that looked very much like a brocolli florret.  Craziest thing ever!!!

The can is about 3-4 years.  Well sealed and undamaged.  Kept in the garage in Vegas, so temps were 30's to 115+ degrees.  I have been googling extensively and cant find a singe mention of anything remotely close to this.  Which freaks me out even more.  Like an X-Files episode with some new life form....and I've been exposed!!!! Aahhh!!

I assume its got to be like a crystal kind of thing or the way a stalactite grows.  Surely it cant be organic like a mold or fungus. I cant conceive of a more hostile enviroment than inside a sealed can of bondo. If anyone knows, I'd love for you to tell me.  My curiosity is piqued.  If no one responds, I guess I'll call the college....... or the NSA!!!! Ha!!

That's pretty weird. More than likely from the temperature fluctuation and condensation, the adhesive material coagulated and formed crystals...

* I just made that up...might want to contact the Men in Black!

now i'm really freakn! i was sure somebody was gonna say "oh, ya i've seen that before. doesnt happen often but sometimes.....blah blah blah" (insert lengthy technical explanation about how 

                A NEW LIFE FORM SPONTANEOUSLY GERMINATED IN A CAN OF BONDO IN MY GARAGE IN LAS VEGAS!)

and i was going to feel better knowing that there was nothing extraordinary going on, that this has happened before. we're all ok. nothing to see here people, keep moving along.

but instead my paranoia and fears have only been validated.  here.  and i  have scoured the net and cant find any article, comment, post, pic, nothing even remotely similar to this.  

and i probably shouldn't be telling yall this (it warned me not to).....the one on the bottom is trying to communicate with me.  but i've just been ignoring it, acting like i dont understand englishB|

here's some more pics, but i wouldnt stare at em too long. you never know...

Yes, definitely do not communicate with it. I wouldn't even touch it. Make some rock candy and put it in there, maybe it needs companionship!  

That is some weird growth you have. The question is, does it keep growing and how big will it get?

I registered just so I could reply to this.  My bondo has also been infected by some unearlthy truffle-like organism.  Someone needs to get to the bottom of this before it's too late.

      Yes I just got a 1998 polaris xplorer 400 4x4. Ran fine after hauling then died. Cleaned carb and put new fuel filter, hose, and new battery in. Starts 3 out of 10 times but will only run for a short time. Any suggestions?

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      Haven't got a service manual for this yet so I'm flying by the seat of my pants I made myself a shifter extension to go up by the gas tank took my foot shifter off to weld it and now when I put it back on I don't seem to be able to find neutral. Is there some asinine reason that you have to do something internally when you change or remove the foot shifter? It was a simple take off weld put back on and dog bite my pecker it's not working. I hope this is something simple I've done and that's something I need brain surgery for. Cheers fellas I know y'all will have the right answers

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!
