I am spending a lot of time on my El Camino hood..
Closing an old Compressor hole in it and recreating the original shape.
Not is owing to plenty warping..
Took me several days but seems like it's working out 😅

Pete McWade says:

Looks like you mostly hammered and dollied the welded area vs hammering the other parts of the panel. So basically I want to hammer and stretch the welded area and not stretch the good metal that is warped out of shape.

eric mikkelsen says:

I've always wondered how to position the dolly behind the hammer. In this video one can see the process from the side which is revealing!

shane stuart says:

Where is the professional Porsche fabricator? Is this kid getting paid for these videos?

Bruce Lee says:

Fitzee fabrication could do it with his eyes closed

Giovanni Thompson says:

Any recommendations for parameters? Amperage, shield gas flow. I've done a lot of pipe welding but very little sheet metal. The warping is a bit unnerving.

John Whltson says:

After you spot welded, your panel was already warped. Try watching Bad Chad for warp free panels. Hammer and dolly is waste of time

Bryan Padilla says:

Not trying to be a. Nay sayer or hater but I feel like this completely wrong way of expressing this problem. Do it on a large. Side panel that you can't lay flat on a table and hammer it out. Why not just get a. A complete new sheet metal piece ……. Not a shop owner professional but I have built many many many cars and I do all my own body/ metal work

Roddy Da says:

I thought it was better to grind the welds before using hammer and dolly?

Something that thin why bother using filler ? Fusing something thin would be perfectly fine for the applications it’s intended for.

Andy Millington says:

Surely you should be using your "skills" to show how to weld with no distortion, especially when Tig welding.

Chris Hanna says:

Ryan’s the best! Would love to see more featured content from him.

Andy B says:

Nice presentation Ryan, good job showing and explaining what happens and how to repair the warp. Thank you.
