warped body panels

Hi My name is Trickie Dickie, I am a journeyman mechanic and I am restoring a 1956 mercury monarch. I took some auto body training about 40 years ago and am trying to do rust repair on my 56 from some of the memory I have left of that time in my life. I am running into issues with warpage. I don,t seem to have any problem with welding in a patch panel but I do get a small amount of warpage the problem comes when I try to straighten it. I seem to screw it up and can,t undo what I have done, it just gets worse. I am a little stubborn as well because I have a bodyman buddy who would come and do it for me but it wouldn,t be the same. Any helpful advice would be appreaciated. Thanks
