Body Joint Lead


SMSgt, USAF (Ret.)

I’ve picked up a few lead bars. All appears to have been melted at one end. They are lead or some combination of lead and other metals. My question concerns the practice of lead sealing of body joints at the factory. Specific to the G506 but should apply to many WW II and earlier vehicles. Is this the form of lead that was used to seal body joints?
