When filling pitting on a frame just use enough material to fill the pits and that is all you need to do..


I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Thanks for that piece of information...pay attention to the frame areas that I mentioned also the splash shields above the running boards, if they seem a little tender (and often they are) let me know and I'll let you know a reinforcement fix for them.

There is a user name "Shine" on another forum that is a sandblaster for yrs.He very accurately said it is volume of air and the sensitivity in distance to the item being blasted that makes for a good job or one that has ruined the item.You got me wondering if it is rust pits or a result of the sand blasting.Pictures please.

I realize this thread is a little old, but Mark 2268 mentioned a product called All Metal body filler. My question is- Can this product be used if the frame is going to be powdercoated?
