OK, it was just a thought and I didn't want you to start a repair that couldn't have a respectable out come. In 2003, I had a neighbor that just bought a 1 year old Hyundai Accent...real low miles, under 5K...He had a little ding in the fender and asked if I could get it out....I tried...but...there was filler right beside the spot that I tried to like I said, just a thought.

69 widetrack One question I would have before you try and straighten things out is, is there any filler at the point that you are trying to straighten? Metal has memory, so straightening metal is a lot easier than trying to straighten a spot with filler in it...filler has no memory.

MARTINSR You have the right idea, no if's ands or buts, perfect. Heating the paint, never did it but the PDR guys do that so it must be a good idea.

Brow in door skin

My coworker has a newer Saab, and she hit the door somehow and now it has a brow with a low spot right above or underneath, I don't recall. She asked me if I could do something about it and said I prob could, but I wanted to check with the powers that be here to check my methods before laying a hand on the door.

It doesn't need to be a perfect repair, just make it so it's not so obvious. My idea was to use my slapper to gently tap down the brow while working the low spot out with a dolly while I tap. I was going to put some tape on the slapper to avoid marring the finish. I repaired the brows in my Mustang roof this way with good results, but we all know that wasn't a finished surface.

I was also wondering if I should warm the area on the door so the paint isn't brittle. I told her I won't do it if it looks like things will only be made worse. This is just supposed to be a bump and done thing. With the car that is, not her.
