    Thats because anybody who knows what theyre doing in the autobody repair business would tell you not to fill the body line in the first place. Its not meant to be shaved.

    well when you weld it, the metal rods become apart of the body, not something added to the top of it like the glass or bondo.

    something on top of something else can come off, something thats apart of something else had to be removed! with force at that

    yes, but the layer of body filler is not as thick as just laying the whole glob on there. At least the rods will serve as a support to help keep it from flexing and cracking. He also has the Torque of a v8 to deal with.

    This is getting old. Do what you want if it makes you happy. I personally would never let a "PROFESSIONAL" touch my truck if he told me he was gonna fill my body line with body filler (duraglass, bondo, whatever).

    And just so everyone knows, a good body man can weld a panel and may not even need to skim it with filler for it to be perfectly smooth. Check out a street-rod magazine sometime.

    Ok Lucky Dime i got one last question for you. What would you recomend using to fill in the lower (big) body line on my mom's saburban? it is like 1/2 - 3/4 in deep so i was wondering if i should use "duraglass" on that too :confused:
