    About Body Filler

    A Fresh Start

    You do what you can to keep your ride looking as smooth and sleek as possible. Washing, waxing, polishing – it all keeps your paint job looking great as long as possible. Unfortunately, it does nothing to hide any small holes or rust-outs your car body might've obtained over the years. Luckily, there is something that can help with that, though: body fillers. At AutoZone, we have a selection of the best body fillers for cars and trucks so you never need to leave the garage with your car, truck or SUV looking anything less than pristine.

    Patch Up Like a Pro

    Body filler is a product that fills in small holes left in the body of your vehicle by rust, collisions or other factors you encounter while out on the road. It's typically made of materials like resin and fiberglass, which can easily be painted over after the drying process to allow the repaired part of your vehicle to match the rest of your paint job. While the process seems highly technical, it's actually rather straightforward. DIY mechanics will start out by mixing the materials according to the included instructions, apply it to the damaged area, smooth it, and wait for it to dry. Once the proper amount of time has gone by, the area should be sanded to ensure a level, smooth surface, and then may be painted. Different types of body filler work optimally on different types of surfaces, which is important to take into consideration when making your selection. If you need help deciding which filler is best for your next job, don't hesitate to ask one of our expert associates at your nearest AutoZone store. They'll point you in the right direction and get you the lowest prices on body fillers.

    Why Filling Holes is Crucial

    It's easy to see rust as little more than an aesthetic nuisance, but the problem of oxidation runs much deeper than a simple eye sore. While most alloys won't suffer from just a smattering of rust across the surface, the presence of rust-outs (holes that have been eaten through the body due to untreated rust) can negatively impact the body materials' performance. Excessive rust may make the alloys used to create most cars very brittle, which makes it less safe in the event that a collision occurs. Furthermore, treating rust and fulling the hole its left is the only way to prevent its spread – almost like a cavity in a tooth. Filling the hole with body filler is much, much cheaper and less time consuming than replacing an entire door or quarter panel because of rust spread.
