    filler removal

    quick one if anyone knows.
    how do you remove body filler that covers a large area and wasnt quite mixed right so never hardened.
    a scraper seams to work well but what about the hard to reach places.
    is there a solvent or simular that will break it down.

    so glad i never mixed it

    on steel a brass wire brush and thinners would get the worst off.

    Meths cleans it off before it has set, i.e. for cleaning up your spatula and mixing board.

    So that might work on your problem.

    Try thinners Wayne, works for non set mixed stuff when cleaning up.
    Or maybe Acetone?

    Get a hot air gun and heat the filler up nice and hot till it blisters and then simply scrape off. Not as messy as using thinners or other chemicals.
