Video Download: Junkyard Tips and Hammer & Dolly
Almost any serious classic car restoration project will include a trip to a vintage salvage yard. But making that trip both safe and rewarding requires a little preparation, planning and common sense.
Join Mark Simpson as he ventures into Rohner’s Auto Parts in Willmar, Minnesota in search of iron treasures. Simpson discusses the proper etiquette you should follow and important tips to discover parts that many may have overlooked. He’ll explore what tools are “must-have with you” and what tools are better left in the car unless needed. And of course we couldn’t help but look around at all of the hidden treasures Rohner’s has to offer.
Whether you just found a good fender in the salvage yard or you’re simply working on the parts your car already has, it’s common for there to be a few dents and dings it has acquired over the years.
Knowing how to remove the dents is an important first step toward saving classic car parts. We’ll explore some of the many different types of hammers and dollies used to straighten metal and how to care for and maintain them.
Finally, we’ll take a look at the process of using hammer and dolly techniques to remove dents in sheet metal.
