    I am continuing the body repairs on my Coupe.

    Does anyone have experience using the "leadless" solders now available?

    Can it be applied over existing lead solder?

    I still have a few sticks of 30/70 BUT want to explore options...

    These solders require more heat to melt, and would be tough to melt over 30/70............not an option I'd wanna explore;)

    I agree, melting temperatures are very different. If i were in your shoes i would be more opt to melt the old lead out and start from scratch or use lead bases solder, but even then I might start from scratch to ensure adhesion.
