I would like know, what has happens to anyone's body filler, after it's been in a molasses soak. I know it doesn't remove body filler, or paint. But what happens if you leave it on, and soak it. Is it still good, or do you need to remove it, and replace it.

It needs to be ground out and removed.

Use a bit of heat from a Propane Torch or a Heat Gun and it will scrape out like putty. Only a bit so you don't warp the metal.

You mix it sulfur to aid constipation.

I would not risk it. If it soaks in the molasses (or anything else for that matter) I would remove it. You can never tell what the long term effects will be so don't take the chance. Always better to do it right the first time so you don't have to do it again latter if it fails.

Thanks guy's I had the same idea about removing it. But I was in a hurry today, to remove the last bit of it. I have scraped about a 1/3-1/2 gallon of filler off my quarter panels already. I removed the upper parts of the quarter to check underneath it, and I was glad I checked. Someone had brazed, glassed, then use filler over the belt line on one side, because of rust, so I needed to check the pass side.

It all started with a little crack on the belt line at the T strip, and grew from there. I have welded in a patch, and repaired it above the belt line, but I need to fix the belt line yet. That's where the filler is still on it. I have to go get my tanks filled to braze it, now that it has brass on it.
