When stripping down old panels for restoration, it’s not uncommon to discover bondo hidden beneath that shiny coat of paint. Never trust old filler as the previous owner may have taken a few shortcuts in preparing the surface for paint. Sanding old filler can send a plume of dust throughout the shop, but using a heat gun instead can make short work of removing old filler without all the dust.
