No - But the filler is designed to be rubbed down and feathered, it was a breeze.

That's maybe the case, I don't know yet, but on the odd occasion I spill fuel on my bodywork I always clean it off immediately so I don't expect this to be an issue.

Working with stainless steel every work day I constantly use a 3M, 5” soft pad on a disc sander. I typically use sand paper in the 80-400 grit range to feather welds. Perfect for the work we are talking about. Anyone interested in part numbers and pictures I’ll be happy to post.
