Instant filler problem

Postby tjmddm » Sat Sep 27, 2008 12:58 pm

I just opened my new tube of all purpose instant filler, however it is stuck inside. I've even subjected it to my weight but still nothing comes out apart from buying a new one does anyone know what I can do to loosen the consistncy? Cheers

With instant fillers I probably wouldn't bother but you could try either warming the tube or adding a little methylated spirit (this works with good fillers like brummer).

it's probably gone off in the tube. take it back to the shop and swap it for another one. personally i don't use instant fillers - the powdered stuff that you mix yourself is much better - sands easier and you can mix to a consistency of your choosing depending on the application.
