just a friendly suggestion,Stay away from using tire weights,the tin/lead is poor quality,impurities in that can cause bubbling from acids.In a year maybe 2 or 3 yrs,Bubbling will come thru the paint and you will be doing the lead work all over and not to mention the paint.As for the flux..again its only my opinion and i dont like using it,Some folks have better luck with it than i ever did.But tire weights..you are just asking for problems.I WOULD use them to practice on a junk door or other panel,But not for a more permanent job
