But nothing wrong with lead either although you will get the ones that say lead is bad for you, don't touch it, lead poisoning, etc. Breathing bondo dust and absorbing it through the skin is just as bad I think. Oh well
I'm using it on the joint between the quarter panel and the roof. It's a structural joint with a lot of filler–it's around 1/2" thick. I could use the metal body fillers but they look harder to use than lead. Regular body filler is out of the question because of the location and thickness. It's also kind of fun to use a material that just about everyone has forgotten how to use.
I've actually got the Eastwood kit but I ran out of lead since I had to do both sides. I was mostly curious if anyone had experience with the other guys guys who sell body solder. A lot of them look a little shady
I picked up some solder at the local surplus building supply place but it was 70/30 instead of 30/70. Oops.
