11461 Eastwood Flux for Lead-Free Body Solder

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect restoration solution I could not ask for a better product, I am replacing body panels on a 1956 Tbird EV conversion. The car was originally leaded at the factory and this is a perfect replacement! It works very well and the video that Eastwood made for leading was very helpful and educational.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leading a 69 Camaro firewall First time lead wiping - this stuff is easy to apply but the secret is preparation preparation preparation. Along with everyone else - I just wish it were cheaper, then I would use it more often. Eastwood's shipping time could be a little quicker too just quietly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Easily met my expectations. Old -school method with new technology worked great on my project. I used a propane plumber's torch and had very little difficulty melting the solder; it flows like butter and spreads evenly with some practice. I found that preparation is important in order to obtain the best results. Clean bare metal, lots of soldering paste (flux), and plenty of heat are essential. Also, too much applied solder is not better because you'll have to spend more time removing the excess. As far as cost goes, if more of us used more of this solder, then, perhaps, the price would go down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and Easy to use Lead Free Solder was everything that was promised. Very easy to apply. My only regret was not ordering extra solder when i bought the kit. I wasted a small amount getting used to it. Ordering more today.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use even for first timer I used this product to fill rust holes in lower front fenders on 69 scout. Several holes ranged in size from pea to a quarter in both fenders. After prep with "flux and solder" and using "soldering paste" on a paddle I cut out of a piece of walnut, product was very easy to use, Didnt take long to figure out the right amount of heat and how to spread and smooth out. Youtube videos helped alot also. Sanding and shaping was very easy using die grinder. Nice, hard, metal to metal repair. Is expensive tho.

Are polyester fillers OK to use over this lead free solder? I've read filler over 70/30 lead is a no no. Even EverCoat told me only their All Metal is approved for over lead, but I don't know about lead free.

Asked by: PaulF
Best Practice is to apply an epoxy primer over the lead or lead free and then apply body filler on top of the epoxy primer. Then once everything is sanded smooth you can apply a poly primer or urethane primer, block again, and then base and clear.

Can this be used on a gas tank ?

Asked by: Jim Jim
Yes you can use the lead solder on a gas tank, and the tank has to be completely free of any gas vapors or residue Pin holes will fill ok and it can be used to fill holes up to 1/8” BUT it will need a backer .
