The dent in me hoe is annoying me.

Going to try and fix it my self.

Give me some advice please.

The plan is to clamp the fender lip and attach clamp to my 1500lb lug all and try to gently pull it out while helping with a toilet plunger...

Cant really access it too well from the inside..

Bare in mind I'm going cut away 2" of fender anyway and then use pocket flairs

Put an inner tube inbehind it blow the tube up and work the creases out with a hammer if you dont remove the creases it will probally pop back in

either pull the interior and access it from backside (will give you best results imho) or drill, pull, fill. Thats a nasty kink at the top :(

very limited access from the inside as its right under the bulk head.

Leave it you look skinnier in the reflection

















Best thing would be to come out here with it on a weekend
We're all my tools are and there's room
We might have to cut out the inner panel to acsess outer and weld it back in
Or cut out 6x9 speaker holes there
