you just look for an edge or something tight that will hold it's ground to pull off of. As stated, slide hammering isn't working the metal how it's supposed to be worked out. You're really supposed to be pulling WHILE hammering to release pressure and work highs/lows at the same time. The repairs come out so much better when that's done. Guys who use the hammer and then smack down the lows after the fact are the guys who usually have panels with too much flex or worse with an oil can, but you do what you gotta do sometimes.
