Lead Wiping/Body Fillers

Hi all,
Getting ready to do some panel work on the project and i'm interested in having a go at lead wiping some of the repaired areas. When i was at the panel beaters supply shop i asked about getting lead for this and the guy pointed me to substitute based on aluminium oxide or something. Works the same as lead he said, you heat up the panel load in up and shape it but don't have to worry about the fumes and it felt heaps lighter. Sounds the trick but wondering if anyone out there has tried it and can give it the thumbs up? I was most worried about how well it sticks i guess.

Incidentally got a copy of the book 'donald wait's panel beating in australia and new zealand' from the library and its bloody brilliant.

SUPRA 5 SPEED MODIFICATIONS?

I posted a different heading this time, to get more interest. I am keen on some info on beefing up a Supra 5 speed. I have heard of some engineering companies that can do this work. I have a W55 (couldnt find a W58 for less than $1200). These boxes seem to want to fail on a downshift into second... That seems strange as this is not under engine torque, just compression. I wonder if the helical cut creates thrust in the opposite direction than when it would under accel, and it fails due to not being held in place correctly? Apparently, M20/21 boxes can be beefed y remachining the lay shaft with a larger circlip in order to combat a problem that is very similar.

TD GEMINI ENGINE ALTERNATIVES

Hey all,
I am a owner of a 1979 TD gemini and I am in need of some info for engine transplants. My ford loving cousin wants me to put a 250 cross-flow in, and it looked like a decent alternative, but recently I have read the 3.8ltr v6 from VN's fit in as well? Does anyone have some info for me? Does it straight bolt? what do I need to do? costs (roughly)? Any info would be greatly appreciated

Ben
