    Works well when you have access to the backside, but what about about all those panels on bus and truck sidewalls? Often wondered how they handled those.

    Was taught how to do that by Boeing Airplane Co. In 1965 and forgot all about that til I saw this. Thanks for the memories (I think, LOL).

    Great video. But where can you purchase bucking bars? Or do you have to fabricate them custom?
