I received the rollers from the machine shop the other day and I still have to make the handles. I was out of town again and need to catch up with all my projects again

Add us to the list for your new batch, please. Meant to do that while we were still at the Resto Rally. Thanks again for the great info you provided there!

Panel replacment or possible repair?

Complete panel replacement or try repair?? I would rather be able to repair than have to do a complete replacement. Would love some experienced advice. Aerowood would love some info on the rollers also. Thanks!

I'm guessing that this is the forward curbside corner panel, and all the damage is on one panel. With this much damage it would be easier and faster to just replace the panel. You would have to remove the interior panels behind the dents to attempt to roll them out. You may be able to lessen the amount of damage but it would still be quite visible. The skin is really stretched behind the bondo

Thanks Aerowood!!

I am in the process of gutting and stripping the interior panels (want the polished interior also) as we speak just came in for a tea break and check the forums. We are getting ready for a "hull on" floor repair and prodex insulation. I already have interior access to the panel (front curbside) but if you feel a panel replacement will be best that is what I will shoot for after the stripping and floor/frame repair. I am still very interested in your roller to add to my airstream tool arsenal..

Thanks for sharing your airstream experiences it keeps a weekend warrior with far less skill than yourself motivated! I have a few more questions and pictures to ask just not sure if I need to break them up in separate threads (don't want to hijack someones thread) or can I just post them here? BTW it is a 1972 Tradewind 25'. My familys first and we are mighty proud to say the least.

Thanks again,
Dale

OK, lot 2 is almost gone, I hope I did not miss anybody that had PM'ed me previously. Is there any interest for a third lot?

I have not heard any feedback on the rollers so I'm guessing everything is good.

This looks like a tool every Airstream owner should have. Do you have any more?
How much are you asking for them?

I have a mini-lathe at home and I bet I could figure out how to make one if you don't have any more.

I have some dents that probably need panel replacement, but if they're going to be replaced, I might as well give it a try first to see if I can make them better.

Cheers,
Kevin

Looks GREAT.

Aerowood, I read the whole thread and it looks really good. I just got a Globe Trotter and there are a couple of dents in the front that need to be dealt with as well as some smaller imperfections I would like to try this on. I am currently removing the interior panels to replace the subfloor. I didn't see a cost. Could you send me a message with some details. I am interested.

Dent Roller

Hi I am interested in one of your dent rollers when you do a batch.
Can you let me know the cost and when you might be doing them?
Thanks Bob

I would also be interested in a roller if you have any left. I have a dent in both front & rear curved sections on the roof area. Is it difficult to remove & replace the curved interior panel above the gaucho and above the twin beds? (1987 Soverign 25') I have been searching the forum for removal & replacement but havent found any specifically for that.
