Been Using Issue 12

This Month I Have Mostly Been Using…

Remember the Holey Toledo project? It’s dropped off the radar a bit over the past few months, but don’t worry, it’s still here and still occasionally gets worked on! Most recently, we were trying to get the bootlid finished – we welded a new corner piece to it, and while stripping the old paint off, we found a big clod of filler in the lower edge. Fortunately, this was covering a dent, not rust, but when you hit an old patch of filler with a wire brush at 3,000rpm, you’re apt to mar the finish a little…

So, out came the new filler, in this case some Tetrosyl Fast 20. They describe it as an ‘ultra lightweight body filler’, and it is light, easy to work, and didn’t sag. It’s nondescript beige, and the included hardener is bright pink, so mixing is simple. It’s not the easiest-sanding filler I’ve ever used, but it’s certainly easier than many, and the finish looks good. Plus, this drum should last me for years!
