How To Fix Car Dents With FIRE – Automotive Restoration

How To Fix Car Dents With FIRE – Automotive Restoration

Video
https://youtube.com/watch?v=Eq1Ier522ZcHere's a tech tip on using FIRE to fix bad dents! My Friend Pete uses a cutting torch to pull dents out of a 1967 Chevy Camaro. Utilizing the use of heat to pull a dent out of metal is easy and simple if you have the right tools. Controlling the amount of heat is the trick for not warping the steel. A body hook is used to pull the dent once the quarter panel is heated up to a cherry red ball and letting it cool down on it's own will leave you with some minor hammer and dolly work.. Save Money and Time by using Heat! http://www.swrnc.com or 972-420-1293 #CuttingTorch #CollisionRepair #DiyAutoSchool

https://youtube.com/watch?v=qfUZTCySwykWe’ve featured a lot of Porsche 911s on Petrolicious, but few have lived as many lives as this 1971 example has. It belongs to a barrister from Johannesburg named Andre Bezuidenhout, and since he acquired it in the early 1990s as a candidate for a race car conversion it has been through a few phases. After an accident that totaled the car and ended its motorsports career, it was restored to road-going specification, sold to someone who lived out in the countryside, and thought to be gone from Andre’s life until he chanced upon it a few years ago and decided to repurpose it once more.
