I am restoring my 71 Chevy C-10 pickup. I bought a 67 front clip for the sloped hood and more simple grill. I brought the stock hood inside to begin cleaning it up today after deciding the cowl hood I also have just doesn't look right. Anyway I had forgotten that the stock hood has a bow right in the center. The rib in the center of the hood is down about 3/8", but I cannot see a visible crease there. I am wondering how to go about bringing this low area back up. I have very little experience with dent removal but I do have a budget hammer and dolly setup. I was thinking of using the edge of an approximate 3' board somehow to push on it, but I truly just don't know how to proceed. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
