How To Lead: Leading a Body Panel with Gene Winfield - Using Body Solder Kit from Eastwood

Includes a big 5 lbs. of solder for serious soldering pros. Spreadable (plastic) range is 361-489 degreesF Includes tools and accessories "How-to" DVD included In 1955 "Bondo" came out as the first plastic body filler and made fixing imperfections in metal much easier than before. Today fixing dents and smoothing imperfections in a body panel has been simplified to where it's almost as "easy" as mixing two bits of putty, applying it to the panel, and sanding it all smooth. Before those days the only option was the process of "leading". During this process you melt sticks made up of mostly lead and a small portion of tin onto the surface. With the invention and evolution of plastic body fillers the art of leading a body panel has been slowly dying out, but if you want to keep "traditional" or true to the era of the car you're building; leading is the only way. Only a few guy from the golden age of kustomizing and hot rodding are still with us, and even less are still working on cars. One of the best is Gene Winfield and even today, well into his 80's he's still traveling the world kustomizing old cars and teaching classes about metal shaping, leading, and anything you want to know about custom cars. I was lucky enough to catch up with him at one of his recent metal working seminars to get the process he uses to apply lead to a panel. Gene is a long time Eastwood customer and supporter. In fact he use Eastwood leading supplies and claims we have some of the best products to apply lead on the market!
