Thanks David,

I had a skin cancer on the bridge of my knose that they had to remove today. I feel like Barb hit me between the eyes with my own baseball bat. I am going to have to keep it clean for a few days so be patient with me. Will get back to it soon.

LOL I can't afford to sit around here surfing Ebay much more. Just won a set of BelAir scripts for the quarter panels. That gives me all the side trim and dash trim except for RH front fender. I have a stick that is really iffy but have been playing with it.

I will post a picture just to show what I am trying to do.

John

This is the only piece of fender trim that isn't just destroyed. It jas a couple of dents that will be an easy fix but the challenge will be a crease that runs about 12 inches down the length fo the front of it.

I played with it yesterday and have it pretty well back in shape but the challenge will be whether or not I can pick it up and down well enough to be able to file it. Time will tell but it will give me something to do until I can get back under the car.

Here you can see where it was creased.



Here is the front after working it out. (trying not to stretch it) It is just roughed into shape and not even close to being straight enough to file.




This is a set of fender trim I straightened for a friend but it was pretty good to start with just a few dings and bends.

That is tedious work John...not my favorite part of a custom or restoration but it's gotta be done...I've got a bunch of brite work on the Model A 1/4 ton....some of it I have to make fit from the old 4 door sedan...that's going to be a treat.

Hope all is good with your surgery John...and all the best.

Ray

LOL, Don't do that. The quicker you get it taken care of the better. Since mine was on the bridge of my nose they had to really work to get enough skin to cover it and those stitches are r e a l l y pulling. It will get better pretty quickly I am sure.

I am wearing my glaaes way down on the tip of my nose.

Ain't I purdy?

My Dad had several of those spots removed from his face over the years. You should be good to go in a few days.

A friend that does PDR has a nylon punch about 1/4" round that he rounded the end of for tapping out creases. It leaves a smoother finish than a metal punch or hammer. Just something to consider.

It sounds like you are making necessary progress with your ebay purchases and gives you something to do.

Thanks Ray,

They reproduce this piece so I can destroy it and it is no big deal. A new one is less than 50 dollars but you know how I hate to spend money.

If I remember correctly John...you prefer to calling it..."being frugal"...I'm sure that being frugal in some areas helped pay the extra cost of the perfect match, skin tone nose bandage...LOL

Always repair if you can John...sometimes it just feels better after it's all done too.

You are exactly right TMP. I have a nylon window tool I have modified and some wooden dowel rods I have contoured the ends of. I have also taken paint stir sticks and cut them into small pieces to be able to apply pressure over a wider area of the high spot of the crease. I lay the piece on a layer or 2 or 3 of poster board so it has some cushion under it. With the stainless you have to be really gentle. My problem was/is this crease was so sharp it was difficult to straighten the actual crease with a softer tool. Bringing the shape back was not so bad though I am not nearly done yet.

Amen. It's all about frugality and a big ego.

Thanks Jester,

It was Basal Cell. If you are going to have a skin cancer that is the one to have.

Everything is good.
