Dont know if its a good filler but i have used in the past with no problems isopon p38 as for welding outside i have no option and have done all my welding in the street on the car park so far had no complaints but is a bit tricky now as when ever i even go out to wash the van i get a gang of little chavvy kids saying what u doin constantly .

Isopon p38/p40 is good stuff but pricy if you are doing a lot of filling.
You can buy commercial products for about a third of the cost, and I've never had a problem with either providing you do the preparation properly.

As to welding, yes you can and most of us have to cos LT's don't fit into most garages.
Just make sure you shield the area from nosy kids cos they will certainly be around.

You might want to check out the welding topics, to see what equipment people use etc.
