Wow! What's it take to do that to a can of body filler? :shocked:

Not really relevant, but a little humorous…

After reading this thread and having my next little 61 Chevy Truck cat-eye hood project coming up soon I figured that I would get some 3M Platinum.

Instead of going to my local jobber which is two towns over I decided to just order it from Jeff Bezos.

This is what showed up! Oh well, live and learn…

Send it back. They will replace it.
Here's what mine looked like when it arrived.

Fortunately it wasn't opened like yours.
Looking at comments, it seems you are not alone in getting a leaking can. Did the box look damaged (mine didn't) or just the can inside.
I think I will order from eBay next time only about a $1 more but very easy to return and replace damaged goods.

I use EBay a lot for that reason. I got a gallon of epoxy from the south, via UPS that was in a box that had been opened and the gallon can was in a plastic bag. The hardener etc was covered in epoxy and it was all over everything, even leaked out the bag. But they sent me another gallon and I used up the 2/3 I got for free lol

I contacted Mr. Bezos' company, they could not replace it but they refunded my CC and told me to just order another one!!

Poured out about two quarts into plastic jars I have.

Everything else that I have ordered online that has to do with Automotive body filler, primers and paints all had those little clips on the cans. And Tamco packs the heck out of their paints and primers!
