Wonderful to hear of your rally Paul. May the Surgical Gods  and the Modeling Gods hasten your complete recovery! And get you back in action here. You still owe us the completion shots of the Maserati 450, which I personally am waiting for!

 

C'mon man !

Can anyone advise me on what is the best type of filler to use on the exhaust? Thanks

I'd try Mr Surfacer 500, brush it on over the gaps and wipe it off when dry with some cellulose thinners or Isopropyl on a cotton bud.  It does sink when it dries, so may take 2 or 3 applications.

 

Alternatively, as it is white metal, you could use any filler from Halfords, like P38 or even some Stopper.

Two part Bondo will adhere well to the WM. Can be smoothed in place also like Surfacer. I use iso also on a bud or finger.

Personally, I would solder the joints with low-melt (70deg) solder....nice and strong. White-metal melts at approx. 180deg, so I set my iron to 100 (it's lowest setting) and works a treat! Any of the previous suggestions will also work well if you don't have soldering implements!

It really is quite easy to learn and it's not expensive to get set-up. With a bit of patience and practice, you'll soon be soldering allsorts of stuff!

 

Cheers, H
