Project XTracker: Tail Section - fill extra holes

Delayed post: June 20, 2018

This is the same flat track style seat pan/ tail section that my Dad had when he owned this bike. Like I said before he doesn't get rid of anything (thankfully!) There were some extra holes in it that I wouldn't be using so I wanted to clean those up. 1 on each side, 1 at back middle and 2 under the seat. I picked up a fiberglass kit from Canadian Tire, roughed it up and laid down some chopped mat and resin on the underside. I then filled the holes from the outside with bondo. 
Later I'm planning to made a new fibreglass seat pan base so that the seat will extend right up to the fuel tank.
