As much as I hate to ask a question that has already been discussed, after reading all the threads I could find on this, I still need to ask for a little more info.
I have a '50 chevy truck, and I want to work on the "beltline" going around the cab. Anybody who is familiar with these trucks knows that the part going around the doors and cowl is very clean looking. But regarding the back of the cab, when the paint is stripped away, you can have a large gap at the bottom of the beltline. This is where the roof section was welded on. I want to fill this gap to make it look like the rest of the beltline. Most of it is only a hairline crack, but in the worst areas there is a 1/8 inch gap.
I know what the lead-using guys are going to suggest, and that's probably the best solution. But I don't have the time, money or brain cells enough to learn and acquire yet another skill. I'm hoping to find a quicker, but satisfactory, solution.
I've seen discussions on this forum about metal fillers. I actually have a can of Lab Metal, but that is an air-dry product. Will it shink in the future?
Would the 2 part products be better? And which brands?
I've seen those 2 part putty fillers in the hardware store? What about them?
Thanks for allowing me to re-hash an old subject.
