    What's the forum's opinion on lead loading? Any one got any experience with it?

    My main worry is that the finish won't be great, but it is only really the very edge of the arches, so I may just get away with it.

    I don't know though, never even seen a lead loaded panel!
    i know it's painful but do you have any pics?
    I'm loving it
