youtube lead loading a replacement door bottom #alfa #boattail
Im kinda surprised they used it so long, not very concerned about it. I thought lead filler was considered antiquated by the 70's/80's for most vehicles. But the spider being so unchanged throughout its manufacture, not surprising.not till the end ..if you dare.. the water channel under the boot lid...scrape away the paint..just a little then press in a small screwdriver, and you can pick the lead out..even a 93 car,,it not going to jump off the car and kill you so dont worry
Thats what it is used for. Even manufacturers used it for seams where it was cheaper to fill than to design/manufacture the seam so better. Ferrari used it to get door gaps.
You know, I chomped on lead fishing weights to clamp them onto my trout line, and there was a bit of accidental lead shot in the pheasants, ducks and quail I ate when I was single and double digits. I still got into Harvard and Stanford. Just saying............Also don't weld around the leaded seams. Not only will it cause liquid metal embrittle ment, the lead vapour is very awful. If you must, scrape as much as possible off and wear a supplied air respirator.
