How to pull out dent

fixing a dent

Postby piranhafd [OP] » Jul 04 2011, 5:05am

I was pulling a RV 5th wheel with a short bed and backed up and turned and crushed the driver side back corner near back window ,breaking back window , My question is do you pull out as much of the dent as possible then bondo? and if so I've seen them drill holes and pull out dents ,I assume a special tool for pulling out the dent and how do you fill the holes after you get the dent where you want it?

might be easier to have it done by a body shop or a buddy who does body repair, its a lot of work to fix it your self if you havent done this stuff before, i use to do body work long time ago but i would have it done.

normally in order to pull out the dents if they can be pulled out we use a special heat/rivet gun that basically welds small medal studs to the body then we use a bar that slides over the studs and grabs them then we just grab the slide handle on the bar and pull out the dent a little at a time. Your better off taking it to a shop.
