This type works the best.


The dent below the body line will take a little more work (still not too bad).

The dent on the wheel arch will be the toughest one to get right, but it's possible.
That's actually a sink plunger. (Sorry, couldn't resist. )

Ha! Never knew there was such a thing. I always assumed they were toilet plungers. Looks like I have the wrong one in my bathroom, lol.

You want the one with the bell for the toilet. Makes a good seal to push, ah, stuff down the pipe.

I used very successfully wife's meat grinder with suction cup. On my Silverado, you could not lean against the box wall, it'll cave in.

r0ckstarr, you think maybe you could take a look at it and help me decide what to do? And if you can possibly do some work I'd be willing to pay you. i ask because I don't think it's worth it on this truck to spend a grand on a new bed and then another $1500.00 for a paint job. My goal is buy an older 2000 model 7.3 with the forged rods that I can take to 550 hp and I can use that money towards the truck I want.

I can't do that on this truck without rebuilding the motor with new piston crank rods. It has the powdered metal rods, very rigid, good to 430-ish hp.

Think about it, please? I'll come down to you. Have a few beers, etc..

Doc,

I think the dent adds a little character, some toughness. Like a "lived-in" look.

Of course, my truck is an absolute clunker!

But if it were me, I'd save my money and pull out the dents as much as possible, touch up the paint, and roll with it! Tough luck with that pole.

I don't have a problem looking at it. My problem always seems to be my work schedule and classes. It will be a week and a half before we have a chance at meeting up.

Until then, try the SINK plunger trick on the big dent. Then post a picture from inside the wheel well showing how much access room you have to work with.

I think you mean "these 2 dents: "eliminar estos dos abolladuras". lol
