    Using the Kansas Jack to pull on the driver’s bumper bracket, while I hammer + dolly and the sheet metal. It pulled out perfectly and the fender looks great 👍.

    The rear end measures strait. All the edges and lines look good. I will have to touch-up paint.

    I have been massaging every dent out of this car. Even the hood had “outtie” dents from being closed when fully loaded.

    I had to remove a bunch of undercoating to be able to work the fenders. It flaked off with an air blower. The paint underneath is perfect.

    There were big areas on each rear fender, that had been previously repaired and primed. I decided to do paint blends on them.

    The paint blends came out great. Ready to wet sand and polish.

    I brushed in some of the paint chips and crack repairs. The color is perfect. They should be almost invisible after buffing.
