greazyball 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 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

spacytracy look up johnsons lead free solder on line. I purchased solder and tinning from them to do the chop on my car. Takes some practice, but I had excellent results on my coupe. Prices are way better than purchasing from big retailers like eastwood. You can look up on tips to use the product on youtube also.

greazyball it will work,but a lead-free flux is not the best in my opinion,My grandfather,my dad and myself have been 'leading' cars for decades,we all tried that lead free/enviromentally friendly stuff and it doent seem to like to stick well to the surface,and it doesnt flow well. I use 'Canfield' tinning butter and their 70/30 virgin tin and lead sticks..its not cheap,but its good stuff
