    1970 Convertible Restoration

    This divot took about a hour to repair, the disc is good, but you have to take your time and feel what the metal is doing. Smooth dents are fairly easy, crunchy dents (like this one) take a little more time. It doesn't turn the metal blue when you use it, like a torch does. You get a feel for how long to run the disc over the area and hope the soapy water seams when it hits the metal. You can let it cool naturally, but that takes a while. The metal will continue to shrink after you use the water. It's a neat tool. A little practice and you can get good results. I did not use any sand paper on this repair, just a piece of red scotch-brite pad to clean the wheel and to remove the residue from the panel.

    I hired a body guy to come to my shop and do the work. The dust is gonna suck. thinking of getting one of those cover-it garages to put inside to minimize the dust area.

    Wow, unbelievable. Bigmal on the forum said that the fires were close and smoke in the air for weeks.

    Body shop cost switcheroo

    When I run across something I did not expect or budget for while doing work for pay "Which I hardly ever do anymore" I ALWAYS call the customer and inform them of what I have found and ask them to come take a look at it and then give a price to fix it or just patch it up LOL..

    Thanks mate, we’re lucky the fire behind us a few months ago has been put out I think, unfortunately it claimed binna burra lodge( Gold Coast ). These photos are from a friend of mine on the Nsw south coast near Bega on Saturday
