Just rough it up with 180-220 grit paper and clean it good and make sure you work the bondo with some pressure to get full adhesion. I have , once or twice , inadvertantly gotten a drop of bondo on a chrome bumper before and you play #ell getting it off once it cures. You will have no problem doing it the way you said. Whenever I have to fix a bunch of minute door dings in a car , I never grind it down to metal. No need to and makes no sense to. RB

With all due respect ,D , I have restorations out there over 15 yrs old and have NEVER had a failure or been able to detect where I repaired using that method over grinding to bare metal. I probably should say "glaze cote" as apposed to "bondo" though since it has a lot finer consistancy . It's all bondo to me and it simply does not need bare metal to adhere correctly. Been doing it for a living since 1971. People who make body filler don't have to make a living with it. If you have 15 small door dings down each side of a car , you are doing no-one a favor by grinding the whole side down or each individual one down to metal to fill.

Directions tell to go to bare metal for best results. I have tried what you said and after two or three years it starts to come loose where its feathered. If your go to bare metal I have never had one come loose.
