A local restoration guy who only works on cars that are worth more than I make in five years told me that when he runs into lead and it is still good but needs to be built up a bit he will use metal lux(3 part)powder,resin, hardener.If it has started to seperate he removes it and repairs it. I know metal lux is tough because I've used it to repair props and never had a complaint. I know of three repairs that I did over ten years ago and they are still using the props. back to the lead question he then epoxy's over it. Then he lets it sit for about two weeks. Thats just one guys method. Hopefully well'l get a some comments on this method to help tou out. I'm interested in this also 'cause we got a 64 out back standin' in line to get into the shop. Cheers!!! and good luck!
