Dear Mr. Bulgier: I have carefully examined and applied a magnet to my Laser and found no bondo, or any similar product. In future I will publish pictures of the magnet applied to various parts of the surface. All I ask is a photo of a Laser showing evidence of bondo. Where's the beef? Sincerely, George Hollenberg MD
