Hello All,
I need some advice. I am working on a bennett 766. Heres the problem: My doors are nice and dent free, but they bow out about 1"-2" in the center near the latches. How do you guys get your doors to flatten out?

Thats called an "Oil Can" dent. I made mention of it on the R.O.T.M. feature, you might want to check that out.

Another way to fix these, is to cut into the dent, straighten the metal, then weld the cuts, afterwards, prep and finish like any other panel. They can be difficult to repair some times. Work slow....
