Will curb rash repair withstand the powdercoating heat?
 
I am interested in getting my wheels powdercoated. However, there are minor curb rashes on them. Can I repair the curb rash with bondo and expect the repair to withstand the powdercoating heat?

why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone and fix the curb rash then have them powder coated by the same place, unless you're doing it yourself. will it make sense to bondo the rash and then have them powder coated??? if the curb rash is minor, why not sand it and then hit it with metal polish.

I am planning to strip the paint to the bare metal with aircraft paint remover and then bondo the curb rash. Then I was going to have it sent to a local powdercoating store.

You might be right. The curb rash is quite minor. I may get away with just sanding it down.
