  • What filler to use before paint

    I have put together a welding cart. I have ground down a few areas and I will sand them too. Still, a few areas are hard to get at. Do you fill the scratches before painting with a Bondo-like material? Do you use Bondo or something else? It would be nice if a product was available that did not have to be mixed.

        I should clarify that is not the welds I am filling. It is mostly the adjacent steel that gets hit by the grinder.

          Bondo works good. I do custom fencing handrails ect. I keep a 5 gal jug on hand.

            If its an 1/8'' thick or less you can use glazing compound. Its a lil easier to work with and more forgiving

              Thanks! I woud use way less than 1/8 inch.

              Any brands to recommend or should I just go to my auto paint store and ask for a glazing compound?
