Yes the factory solder was in was appeared to be very good condition. Seemed to have good adhesion with no cracks or visual blemishes.
The only thing that i can think would have caused this would be not cleaning the lead with some type of solvent before applying filler.

Usually the sail panel areas seem to hold up Ok but on most models the A-pillar to roof seam is usually bad with cracks and corrosion underneath on GM cars, not sure about the older Fords though.
