new video up...quarter panel extensions/ creative tooling

there's some other stuff in there too. there's a glitch in the program I use and it happens every time I add a pic and use a snap shot sample. Other than that it's ok. The next one will be strictly auto body stuff, no gimmicks.

I too use a cotter pin puller for removing belt moldings and youíre absolutely right about rolling the belt moldings during removal.

I also like your idea on using a palm nailer as a planishing hammer. Never thought of that.

glad you agree with the cotter pin tool. so much better than that mac tool that's made for those mouldings.

The only thing, I never used a real planishing hammer to compare it with but it works pretty well anyhow.

Iíve never used a planishing hammer either. However, I can see where it could be used in areas where trying to use a body hammer and dolly is impossible such as inside a quarter panel or inside a door skin. With the work I do a palm nailer is definitely going to be my next purchase and as you pointed out theyíre fairly cheap. No excuse not to own one.

just be mindful that you not only need backside access but you need comfy backside access or it will jump on you, or maybe I just have short arms-lol This is why I mentioned that it's harsh on your shoulders, cause you're basically trying to keep in full contact. Other than that, it works well. I just got a cheapie harber freight one, some grade 8 bolts, and some different washers. Was fun to make those for sure.

Iíll be sure to duct tape some foam to the back of my hand.

Granted, it wonít work on all areas. However, for those obvious areas where access is available and where the hammer and dolly still wonít work this seams a viable solution.

I was taught that but being it's a cheapie I guess I haven't respected the tool. I guess I shouldn't do that though cause it will dull it out.
