Eastwood Body Solder Kit Standard with DVD is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good kit, weak instruction I used the body solder kit this past week with no prior experience. I watched the included DVD and found it helpful but not complete. My biggest challenge was tinning the bare metal prior to applying the lead, and the DVD just didn't provide enough detail on how hot to get the metal, while the tinning paste instructions warned against over heating. Through trial and error I finally got it figured out. The other shortcoming with the kit is it doesn't include any bronze wool, as recommended in the video to help with the tinning process. Other than those two nits, the rest of the tools and materials worked great and I'm pleased with the results. The job I did was fairly simple, just leading in the seams where the trunk header panel meets the quarter panels.

Technically yes, kind of an old school route to take over TIG welding. But yes

About Eastwood Body Solder Kit Standard with DVD

Traditional lead-based solders have been the choice of restorers and customizers for over 80 years. Our 30/70 lead solder works well on horizontal and vertical surfaces, and its low melting temperature makes the 30/70 lead solder slightly easier to work with than our lead-free solder. Body lead solder's tensile strength is 6,140 psi. Instructional DVD included helps you do a professional soldering job.
