INTRODUCTION TO BODY SOLDERING
First clean the area to be filled back to bare metal with a stripping disc, sanding paper etc.
Brush solder paste over an area slightly larger than that to be filled and heat the area gently until you see the solder paint tin the panel.
Remove excess solder paint with a clean cloth. Next, melt blobs of lead onto the panel over the area to be filled. Prepare your paddles by warming the surface of the tallow and wiping your paddle in the molten puddle. With a suitable amount of lead now deposited on the panel, heat it carefully until it can be spread like butter with your paddle.
Control heat carefully and keep spreading until body solder is evenly spread over area. Wash with cool water to quench and to remove traces of acid solder paint.
Don’t grind or sand, use a Flexible File.
