Rolling Fenders that hair been repaired with Bondo

I got in an accident 1/2 a year ago, and my rear fender was repaired with bondo....

is it still safe to roll my fenders? Or will the bondo on my fender crack?

Depends on where it is relative to the lip of the fender. If the bondo is right at the edge of the lip, it will most likely crack as it's not flexible (compared to sheet metal).

I wouldn't roll it just because it has bondo on it. I recommend shaving the fender and smoothening it out.

+1 to Jason's shaving idea

I'd get it done asap before it rubs on your fender possibly causing a crack. Either way, the body shop shouldn't have bondo'd it. It's either replace the fender (example: front fender) or weld a new piece onto your rear fender.
