To replace or not to replace: roof skin on 77 Trans an

I know but it's not making sense to me. You're telling me to make a spoon like you out of a leaf spring, but yours is like 1/8" thick. Mine is way thicker than that. I made one and it's way to heavy to effectively slap dents. Did you mean for me to mill these springs down in thickness? I don't have a mill.

I am gonna try bending a little .125" x 2" x 4-6" piece of steel around a convex shape. Maybe I'll bend it around a pipe and then bend the end up and grind out any wrinkles that come out from the duel bend. I'll pull the handle off the slapper I pictured on Sunday.
