Classic Car Restoration: Body Work : How to Hammer Dents for Car Restoration


Hi. I’m Doug. I work with twenty great guys
in St. Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods and we are going to do some work for you today
on Expert Village. Now Alex is taking a body hammer and he’s bashing away at the rust.
We are trying to get to the solid material. So he’s beating off some of the rust; cutting
away a little bit of it; doing his best to do as little damage to the car as possible,
but getting back to good solid metal so that our repair, we can weld it to something solid.
We know it’s a good long lasting repair. We warranty our work, so we have to stand behind
it real well. Anything that gives up when he hits it with that hammer isn’t strong enough
to be used as repair material. Now he’s drawing on there his educated opinion where he thinks
the rust is going to be stopped and where he’ll have solid metal. And then his next
step is to take a metal grinder and cut that away to that point.
