I fished several of the bondo'd lures hard yesterday, and they were fine. I was afraid the loose bb's might knock the bondo out, or cause a leak, but it didn't happen.
That was one reason I put a drop of crazy glue over the bondo once I'd sanded it smooth, because bondo itself isn't that strong.

sorry to bring up a slightly old post here, but i just thought of something worth mentioning.
U40 rod bond (rod building epoxy glue) might be a good product to use for this purpose.
they make it in a 10min as well as the slower curing stuff, but more importantly it has a really thick consistancy without having to wait for it to start curing.
