Gettin' the lead out

DA GOAT had a vinyl top, but no more. The lead work looks like ass in a few places, I heard vinyl top cars had a quickie lead job done. So, now I want to get the lead out and replace it with filler. Has anyone done this? What kind of filler do I use? Is there anything to look out for? I already have protective gear and a torch.

When I did mine, I went back with Eastwood's "no lead" body solder and got it as good as I could, then finished it off with thin skim coat of regular filler. It turned out nice.
