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 


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?

It appears to be from Krypton . If you touch it,are you able to climb walls and such ?

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.

      Hello - I have just had delivered my 2004 registered King Quad 300.
      The gear change is pretty fierce.  Pretty hard to get into gear from neutral on the foot pedal and when I select reverse on the hand lever, it jumps into reverse with a hell of a kick.
      I am waiting for a service manual to arrive, but in the meantime, has anyone any suggestions please?
      Thank you.

      Hello all, 
      I haven't had a dirt bike or ATV for years, but a buddy of mine just picked up a raptor 700 and makes me want to get back into the sport. I'm looking for the best bang for my buck utility quad that can go in snow, but also hit some small jumps and trail ride. It would mostly be used for light trail riding; not really any mud holes or jumps around me (Bristol, Massachusetts). My last bike was a 2004 yz125 2 stroke and it was a pain. Every other ride I was doing something to the bike. I'm looking for a utility quad that I can ride for a month without having to touch it. I've done a bit of research so far and it seems like my best bet would be ~2014 Yamaha grizzly 700 with ~1000 miles for about $5,000. I'd love some more opinions from people who are more knowledgeable about the sport. I'm looking to stay around that $5,000 range. Also, there's no trails around me to go more than 40 or 50mph so I'm not too worried about keeping up with the 700.

      Hello from Buhl, Idaho (near Twin Falls). I typically ride at least once a week in the Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area. Also like to ride in Colorado, Utah (especially Moab), Montana and Wyoming. I currently ride a 2013 Yamaha Grizzly 550. Anybody want to ride in Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area look me up. I know these areas very well. I've also done a lot of dirt bike riding and 4X4 (Jeep) in the above listed areas over the last 15 years.

      Hi Folks,
      Just bought this 1991 King Quad and it is missing the right front axle.  It runs and drives in 2 wd, would be nice to find parts or whole axle to make the 4 wd drive work again.  A rebuildable  axle would be fine.  Any help would be great.  
      Thanks Hilltopmike

      Been contemplating getting one for a while now, found one that's in my price range. Will be checking it out tomorrow. 
      87 yamaha warrior 350, bone stock.
      Mainly just to put around on and ride the back roads up nothern mn. With it being a single cylinder 4 stroke not exactly powerful or fast but enough.
      I know if I dont like it i could easily get my money back on it.
      I'll poke around on here a little bit but not really big on forums anymore.
