DIY car body repair is not missile construction, we will figure it out. After all, how many times have we encountered this problem when we drive up to the Kostrav, and he goes to look at your car, all so thoughtful (I would like to ask what he thought about). I think so, evaluates the solvency of the client. But our hands are the same. Why not try it ourselves? We finish the lyrical retreat, we are going to business. In this article, we will touch upon the removal of dents. For the most part, such work does not require subsequent painting. But when removing deeper dents, it is still not possible to avoid painting and putty. And at the end of the article, an amazing video to remove dents awaits you (I can argue few people know about this method).
Small dents on a car are simply squeezed out on the reverse side, until the part is completely restored. But it happens that the surface does not want to fall into place in any way. For example, if the dent is close to the welding site. No matter how much you press, the dent will still remain, although it is less significant. Then we take a derving block, a sinking size, we attach one end of the bar into a bulge and lightly hitting a hammer with a hammer on the second end of the bar. We straighten the dent. On the reverse side, hold the site with a piece of board so as not to damage the paint, you can wrap the board into the rubber (a piece of the old chamber will fit) or in a rag. It should be noted that it is necessary to straighten the dent from the edges (the center will go), it will turn out more carefully. The way, of course, is unaesthetic (with a hammer and by car), but effective. You should not be especially zealous here, knocking a hammer with a hammer (otherwise you will have to straighten the part on the back).
As for deeper dents, here we use the same bug method. Correct the center of dent, and then from the edges. If the dent is inaccessible to the place, for the bar, we use a special tool. Iron lever (you can even a piece of pipe), suitable in length and flattened at one end. The principle of this, we put a flattened end of the lever under the dent and pressing the lever to straighten the dent. So that we can succeed in this trick, we need a support for the lever closer to the dent. An element of the body can serve as a support if there is no, then put the bar as close as possible to the lever. For convenience, bend the flattened end, as you are convenient. It will not be possible to avoid puttying this place, but if you have a time of time and patience, then the consumption of putty can be minimized.
So let’s summarize for today. We learned that straightening dents, the matter is not complicated, there would be a desire. What is needed for this literally what lies under our feet. And finally, that this can be done with minimal costs.
