Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! hardens like armor when used right! First off, I am NOT a professional body tech. I grew up in the poor folks sector that scrounged and used anything and everything cheap. that said, I've had experience with a whole bunch of different body materials. more than I'd like in some cases. first thing I did was test a small blob of it with both cream and liquid hardener and it works great with both. (I prefer the cream because the color changes as it mixes). It goes on smooth and pretty much bubble-less (IF you've done your prep correctly) . I do suggest you do your buildups in stages and try not to slop as, once its hard? its not an easy sand without a Disc sander. I even smacked it with a hammer to see if I could fracture it and... nothing! so, for all the negative remarks? learn to test your product if you've never used it... this stuff rocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as stated. it does require patience. I have used this product on and off over a couple years. It works great. It has been used in areas that I know has some chance of flexing.. I am restoring a 60 Triumph TR 3 and the inner fender wells on the front and back will flex. I used it over welds where new sheet metal was welded in. No issues. It took me a few tries to get the amount of hardener just right. It does take a few hours to set up. Even then it has a tacky feeling. I found that if I take a small knife blade and gently scrape the surface, it will remove the portion of the resin that comes to the surface. Then I took some used 60 grit sand paper to to scuff off the surface before taking a new piece of 60 grit sand paper to It. I am very happy with the product. It does stay flexible and moves with the metal so you do not get stress cracks. Do not expect to sand it down until several hours has gone by. BE SURE to stir up the contents of the can to mix it thoroughly, as the liquid will separate from the solid paste material after sitting, even for amshort period of time.. I personally would recommend this product.

Would recommend this for smoothing out frame pitting? Should it be done prior to rust encapsulater? Is there a better method?

Asked by: Vtjeeper
For Rust Encapsulator to do what it is designed to do- it needs to come in direct contact with the rust. You would want to use this after using the Encapsulator.

I've replaced some bus windows with sheet metal in the original openings. Would this be a good product to use to finish and seal the outside 90 degree edge and small crack where the sheet metal sits agianst the bottom and side pillars? Thanks

I plan on using this to reshape a door sill where the metal got thin and had to be welded back up (no replacement sheetmetal available for the repair). What sandpaper grits do I use? How quick does it set up, and when can I begin sanding?

Asked by: JPScout800
The surface will need to be sanded with 220 grit and wiped clean, it will set up within 15 min. You can sand it as soon as about 30 min.

Can this be used to repair small pits in pontoons where they contact the bunks? Is there something else you recommend? If so, what finish should be applied after this product for prevention on the whole pontoon? Sharkskin vs clear coat?

Asked by: Shane
The contour Aluminum Filler can certainly be used for your small pits in the Pontoons. As for protection the Sharkhide, or our ExoAmour, would be the way to go. https://www.eastwood.com/exoarmour.html https://www.eastwood.com/sharkhide-aluminum-protectant-quart.html

Can this be powder coated over after it cures

Asked by: Timmy
This will not stand the curing temperature of powder coat. The best filler to topcoat with powder is our high temp lab metal.

How exactly do you measure the 2% of cream hardener needed to (Contour) aluminum-filled compound

Asked by: Bubba
A rough estimate would be to use 1/2 tea spoon hardener for about 2oz of filler.
