panelguy, she's pretty well complete with a couple of rust thru small holes--Here's another for you; How hard is it to learn to use lead instead of body-filler? I'm an older fella new to body work but have a good mechanical aptitude.

why would you want to use lead? you trying to shorten your life span? I have seen some old body men you who used alot of lead over the years and it didnt help their health much.

I would stick to good ol body filler and where a dust mask when sanding.

Spudder, when I say "lead" I wouldn't touch the old fashion lead/tin stuff. I believe there are a few types of soldering metals that do not have lead within. But, having said that, I would like to learn the art of using "lead" around the rust areas that really need some metal. ie, maybe the top door drips where the metal is really pitted. If there are better ways, I'm sure type that will appreciate any help that you or anyone else can give me. I'm old and new to body-work but I will surely listen. valensage
