I found this Heller Vixen file at an Estate sale this morning.

I finally located the hiding place of my Nicholson body file and took a picture.

If I lived near you, I might be tempted to teach you how to use then body files. My Grandfather owned Chevy dealerships and several body shops in the 30s and 40s. He taught me to lead bodies back in the 60s when someone ran over my pedal car. Somewhere packed away I have the last of his lead and tools from his garage.
VWs to D10s, I've fixed em.

Now I'm no leading expert, I did have it in high school auto shop.One of the things I collect (if it don't cost much) is lead sprayers.I have a like new Brent's in the original box. Sorry no pic handy,
but a page from the manual.I have not been brave enough to fire one up, but a friend did and it throws a lot of lead real fast!
A bunch of pics (3000+) of tools and project in our shoppe
