    My back door is wood in the centre and has a metal capping on the outside. It has some dents in it in places. I have sanded the door down and prepped it removing all the old paint, cracks and previous paint job but I need to fill these dents to make it look better in black.

    What filler would you recommend I use? I have some Red Devil in the shed, would this suffice? I;d appreciate your advice. Thank you.

    Photos attached although the dents aren't very clear.

    Toupret is a good brand for filler.

    Red Devil I think, is one of those weird light weight ready mixed fillers innit ? Ie, you buy a new tub and think it’s empty as it weighs literally nothing

    Not suitable for this application I would say, this type filler doesn’t set rock hard - maybe ok on a plaster wall

    For this type of wood repair, which will be overpainted, you can’t beat Ronseal 2 Part Wood Filler

    Sets in ten mins and ready to sand (dependant in depth/ time), no depth limitation, sets like rock, sands down without too much bother, and with varying grades of paper, blends in perfectly with a glass like finish

    This is the way to go for this repair

    Car body filler - although I'm not sure how it differs from the Ronseal tbh.

    Find a supplier of DECOR FILL, again a 2 part filler this one is for the filling of metal, wood, concrete and plastic so far more versatile than the Ronseal wood filler.;)
