from the April 2008 RootesReview:

Joe Parlanti has discussed powder coating on many different occasions. He recently replied to a Tiger list question about how to get rid of pock marks and other defects in the metal surface to be coated.

On page 78 of Hemmings Sports & Exotic Cars is an article about a product from Alvin Products, a division of the Dampney Company. Alvin’s Lab-metal filler preps parts for powder coating. It is a single component metal repair/patching compound, applies easily and can be sanded prior to applying the powder coat process.

The cost is about $15.00, depending on the size of the container — 16, 24 and 48 ounce cans, or in one and five gallon pails.
