That left a mark

IMG_1198 IMG_1199 IMG_1200 IMG_1201This Lexus popped in today to get some nasty dents fixed in the left rear door and left quarter panel. We first started this repair with a stud welder. This tool welds a small stud to the panel. We then us a special slide hammer to attach to the stud and pull out on the slide part of the hammer to pull the dent out. Picture 3 show me welding studs to the panel. After we are satisfied with the metal work, we apply the body filler. Using the stud welder greatly reduces the amount of filler needed to repair dents. This one too should be in primer tomorrow.
