    That depends on the complexity of the crack and what the structural integrity of the workpiece is before the crack is fixed.
    In most cases, Bondo works fine but sometimes the area needs structural reinforcement via. metal plates andsuch if it is really severe. If its really bad, it may be better to cut your losses and just get a new bucket.

    the crack is nearly invisible on picture. its on the very edge of the mandable and runs from the edge of the t-visor area to the RF earcap
