Do any of you fellas know where I might look to find some advice / detailed "how to" instructions on how to take some dings and dents out of the cab on my TT. Understand that right now I know nothing about doing this sort of work. But thought that if I could find some help I can learn. I was a saw filer my whole working life so do know how to move steel but I have never tried any body work. Thanks Steve

Steve,

See if your local community college has auto body courses. I took one and learned a lot about how metal responds to certain inputs. If you can't find a course, maybe see if a local body guy would be willing to show you some basics after hours for extra cash. Or ask them for some junk fenders and doors, pick up a decent set of hammers and dollies, and practice without risk of damaging your TT.

Lots of videos on YouTube you could watch.

Practice, Practice, Practice. Some good tips from others along the way will help. Getting the feel of the metal is essential. It is best to start with less valuable parts first. I would think there are some good U-tube videos on this.

All of the above. Or come by my place and we'll get the hammers, dollies, and torch out.

Steve,

Unless it is rust repair the is a structural issue - you might want to leave your TT as is ....

There ain't another one like it .....

I always prefer the rusty crusty survivor ... :-)
