Filling / smoothing holes is factory roll bar.

Have any of you tried to fill and / or smooth out the holes in the factory roll bar? The biggest ones look to be where the shoulder belts mount. I'd like to fill in those holes, smooth things out and re-paint and I am looking for suggestions. They look to deep to use bondo but maybe fiberglass? Any ideas?

Thanks

A buddy of mine put round headed bolts in his and welded them out with a mig welder. Then flapper disc them out smooth and painted. They look like they were never there.

This is a pretty good idea. I was thinking of filling them with the MIG but by the size of the holes I was also thinking it would be a whole lot of wire and time and heat into the tube. Never even thought of starting with a bolt

Bump before this gets buried under pages of more important stuff.

Has anyone here actually done this and does any one have any ideas /experience with fiberglass or bondo or something else?

Thanks again.
