    I just recieved one of the Eastwood Lead kits (because it was a good time to replace my file and paddles) that came with an instructional DVD.
    I learned how to do lead work from my old Autobody instructor years ago and I have never seen a video demonstration. I found it to be very good and as detailed as you can get on tape.

    My question to everyone is regaurding the plastic filler segment of the video. They tell us to stir the can of body filler. I have always been told not to do this because it allows air to enter the filler which in turn causes pinholes in the spread filler.

    Does anyone do this?

    Stir is a big no and yes it can trap air that would lead bubbles.

    I believe there are new products that require stirring.

    OK we tried painting my Bushwacker Fender Flares with the said product and it worked well even if we stirred the body filler.
