Mine weren't bad. We welded in any metal needed, but hot lead does a bit of strengthening just on it's own. What I really like is wherever lead is, air is not and never will be again !

I've heard of hot leading before. Isn't that how they did body work in the old days before bondo? Also a question do you just use say acid core solder and a propane torch? what is the method used? I've always kinda wondered.

The guy who did the leading for me went to great pains to let me know it was non-rosin core lead ingots he used. Showed em' to me and the flux he used too.

They were still leading certin vehicles at all three of the big guys in the very early 70s, so there's till a few people who remember how.

Tell us more! I could use this on my passenger side quarter right over the wheelwell on my 91 f150 has some pinholes hate to use bondo there considering it will just pop out again later.

The Eastwood company is the American supplier that comes to mind. They sell whole kits with instructional videos. It ain't too tough to learn, just real bad for you (lead and all).

I'm never gonna do it again, so I just paid the man with the experiance in my area.

Wow, hotleading, didnt know anybody still did that! I had a little done on my '66 Mustang before she was shot with new paint. Much better than bondo. Good to know it isnt lost yet!
