    Default Lead filler replacement

    I replaced a quarter panel and the tail light panel on my '72 Nova, now I'm onto bodywork but I don't want to try and learn how to work with lead, I've heard there are fillers out there now that supposedly work as well as lead. Is this true? What are you guys using to fill these voids? I could mig weld fill the void but it seems like there has to be a better way.

    I'm no body man but I did similar research 6 months ago. I ended up going with evercoat metal-2-metal which is an aluminum reinforced filler. Seems there's no straight answer to your question but the only uniform advice I got is to stick with the one brand from start to finish. since I was using evercoat it made the decision a little easier.

    Both of those options sound great, I talked to a 3M rep and they had also suggested using body panel adhesive topped with fiberglass filler.
