The dent was in an area with no writing. The dent did have a crease. JB weld did nothing.
Lead free solder and a piece of 1/16 brass rod enabled me to get some of the dent but the crease was very evident. Silver solder and the brass rod ground to a V was scary, but worked great. Use as little solder as possible and aim for the deepest part of the crease. It will take several pulls. When your happy with it heat and wipe off all the silver solder you can.
Sand the area with progressively finer paper. Stopped a 400 and buffed with red compound on a cotton wheel.
A jewelers or radiator torch and as little heat as possible will keep the silver solder from going too deep.
Beautiful! You win today's Richard Eagle "DIY craftsmanship" award.
I'm glad you jumped in and tried it. What a neat trick and it looks great.
I believe there is a fast drying epoxy the body shops use in the same manner. They glue a rod to the dent with a dollop of epoxy and pull it once dry.
Yes Ed it's called a hot glue gun.You can glue a stud to paint to pull out hail damage.Works very slick. pete
