Lead free body solder

Just wondering if anyone has experience with it and if it can be purchased anywhere besides Eastwood. I want to do some custom work on my car and I'm concerned using plastic filler on edges.

Nothing wrong with the good plastic fillers.

I would question a different type of metal filler. The old timers used lead because it was the filler available to them. If there was a better metal I would think they would have used that.

Plastic fillers have been around a long time and have had time to become the best they can be.

A new metal filler will have some type of flux, heat, durablity and paint problems to work out. I would not want to be the test group.
