[DML] Re: Dented Doors



If you know me, you know I can't leave something broken or damaged
without at least trying to repair. I have been doing body work for
years, and even some stainless work (very little)-so I figured why the
hell not. In a case such as mine, the rock hit so hard it "stretched"
the steel inwards. I used a propane torch to trick the metal into
forming back into position (of course there was some rippling) but now
it is almost perfect (and has no ripples). I just need to do a tiny
bit more work and it
will look like nothing ever happened. Except the very bottom of the
door where it is impossible to hit from behind, this will still be a
little rough. This work took me about 6 hours, so its very slow going
to make it perfect. But you take this kind of time, and you will be
very happy with the results. With this kind of steel you need to
fashion your own kind of tools, but other then that, its kinda fun. If
you havent done any repairs on metal I wouldn't go out and just start
hammering away, this takes time, skills and all kinds of tools and
rigging.
I'll be sure to post pictures of the repaired dent tomorrow- Dani B.
