Checking for bodyfill

What would a good way to check for body fill on older painted body panels? would running a magnet along it work?

Yep, that's how it done. Doesn't work on Vettes though

Thanks, I dont remember where I heard that from, But someone was talking about getting some old panels off of a bus, For an old chev truck, he is restoring. He mentioned how he would like to know if they are any good (very mininal body-fill) and thats what I told him to do. I just wanted to make sure that that actually was a way to check.

use a sock

Put a magnet in a sock and check it that way.You do not want to scratch the paint so use a sock.
