How to fix trunk lock hole?

I seem to remember someone made a tool to straighten out a bunged up hole. Mine, on the 69 Torino I'm working on, looks to have been pounded out.

Here it is...http://eastwood.resultspage.com/sear...runk+lock+tool, but I think you're going to need a little metal work done on that gash on the right side of the hole.

I have fixed many of them over the years without one of these tools. And I have to tell you, where that damage is at, it is curved and with the inner structure behind it, I would bet that tool will do nothing for you.

If you push from the rear, using your imagination with a dolly, hammer, pliers, chisel, etc. Then of course welding up the tear, you will get it.
