    Default Straightening bent doors / quarters

    Anybody know any neat tricks other than rubber mallet on the floor to get doors and quarters straightened (flat) out nicely ? I have seen something like a portable english wheel that purports to do it, but they're pretty pricey.

    There are so many times I wish I had a steam roller.....
    Anyway, I use a dead blow, concrete floor, bang, bang, flip, bang bang, flip, repeat.
    Get it as flat as you can and put it back in the brake.

    I have been taking a piece of cardboard and laying on my drive way and putting my doors on it and taking my truck and driving over them. Seem to work pretty good, less hammer marks and less time consuming. I do wish there was a better was to straighten door while on the car.

    I think the Morans are selling a roller system to smooth panels back out.
    I think there should be lifeguards in the genepool.

    I just lay the wrinkled pannels in the grass and walk over them - helps get most of the wrinkles out - then i use a rubber or deadblow hammer to finish -- do not beat on it -- it will stretch the aluminum and make it worse

    try a block of wood instead of just the hammer, spreads the load and might keep them from looking like crumpled tin can
