Just liability. Well my car's trunk is totally messed up, why is it bad to do it yourself? I just want to get input so I know I am not paying a guy $$$$ on something I can do myself. My main concern is getting out the serious dents and stuff...paint and stuff can be done by pros.

Sorry to hear that. Anyways, I think you shouldn't try hammering it by yourself if you haven't done anything like it before. If the dents are deep, the bodypanels propably need to be heated to get them back to right measurements. Deep dents strecth the steel, so you need to heat it to get it back. Plus many other tricks. I wish I'd live in USA or you'd live in Finland. I'd really like to help fellow sixers out with these kind of problems.

I hope you get what I'm trying to say. My storage of words is kind of limited...

PS. Yes, I and my oldman run a bodyshop so I guess I know sumtin about this.

wo you'd need to strip the paint and heat the panels then use a hammer and leather bean bag to strech the material back, to say the least. Go to a pro.

Turns out the car is not so good shape. I went to a pro he said that the back half of the car is basically twisted...I need to get a new back half!
