Lead worked great from the factory. Even 70 years later, it was still OK. Lots of horror stories, but my research tells me grains of sand from sandpaper lead to paint failures. (no pun intended) I used a body file only and made sure to leave it low for a skim of Bondo over the epoxy over the lead.

I will be using metal in the C pillars at chop time so I only see a wee bit more to use.
