When I went to body school back in 1971. Just the other day. The instructor told us the only thing a shrinking hammer was good for was to tenderize a steak before you put it on the grille. The old car sheet metal was a piece of cake to heat and shrink but this newer tin foil cars takes some getting use to. Just be sure to heat a small spot and don't work it to long. You can always go back in and reheat if its not enough. Alot easier than fixing a warped panel because you got it to hot.
