metal will have to be shrunk-find someone that knows what there doing or you can create a worse problem than you have.good luck.t.nugent roa 12969.

Yeah you have to heat the metal up and quench it...(we used an accetlene torch where I used to work and when I say we in this post I mean "body guy" at the shop lol) easier said than done. Gramps always said if you don't have the right tools for the job, then you pay someone who does. Good choice on the having a body man do it.

also there was a guy at my shop that could fix dents without messing up the paint with dry ice....
