Will bondo hold up on the muffler ?

Background: I’m refreshing my bike slowly and one of my objectives includes making my slip on look good again. I wrecked and is took some scraps and a dent. I got most of the dent out but I really want it to look good. I’m not buying a cheap ass slip on. I’m also not buying an expensive one. Worst comes worst I’ll round it out best I can and sand it really good.

Back to my question: will bondo be sufficient to fill in the minor imperfections and shape? Then after I sand it down and make her look perfect will the bondo hold up to the heat and vibration ?? My exhaust is a pinebox screamer and I have a custom tune for it so I don’t want to replace. It also comes right off the head and barely peaks out of the belly fairing so I’m sure it gets damn hot but never gp racing red hot. Thanks in advance

No. Bondo will soften and start to crumble when exposed to high heat.

Say no more 🤚 returning tomorrow. Idk how to make it look good without buying a new one 😭 I guess I’ll round it out my best and start with a rough sand and work smooth...

Take a dremel and make a slash cut tip out of that.

Yeah that’s not a bad idea at all lol. I have to check how far down the mesh starts, it’s not a naked pipe believe it or not is has stuff in there. I think I will actually end up doing that and using some high temp black spray paint, ballin on a budget baby haha
