Hi, Kip,

I am so sorry to hear about your mom and your son's evacuation. Both are devastating, but together, I can hardly imagine.

I would like to place an order. Can I send you a deposit on PayPal or a check?

I was walking through a flooring department in a DIY store and saw a roller that reminded me of your fabricating one for Airstream. I'm still plugging away on my 68 Trade Wind.

No hurry at all. This project of mine is not going anywhere for a long time.

Anne McWilliams

I have gutted my rear bath due to a necessary floor rot repair situation. I have some hail damage and have also discovered some larger dents in the process I'd like to try the roller on. I appreciate and am glad to support your innovation (that is if you have any more available). Thanks.

I'm working on finishing them up now. I will get in contact with everybody soon.

Mom passed away on the 19th of Oct. after she fell and hit her head on 8 Sept. My life is starting to regain some normalcy so no more delays in my fabrication of parts. I will start sending out PM's by the end of the week.

My condolences on the loss of your mother.

My father also fell and passed a result of a cerebral hemorrhage.

Blessings to you as you get through a difficult time.

Aerowood,

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom, you certainly have had a difficult time this fall. And it's never easy to lose a parent. You're in my thoughts.

Things are getting back to normal. Dad passed away 2 years ago and we started cleaning up the place then. We filled a roll off dumpster with just basically Junk. My parents were depression era babies and the did not throw away anything. After my grandma, aunt, and uncle pased away is the last 10 years they just brought all of their stuff to their house. We even found the urn with my aunt's ashes, which we inturned last year in Nebraska. If I do one thing before I leave this earth, it is to not leave my children with the mess my brothers and sister have inherited. It will take untill at least this spring to clean up the place to sell. Everyone knows that selling the home you grew up in is like selling a piece of your sole.

Dents in Stainless Segment Protectors

I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. My sister and I face the same challenge of cleaning out the family home.

Will your dent roller work on the stainless steel segment protectors on the front of the trailer? Ours have accumulated quite a few dents from rocks and another road trash and I hate the way they look. I know I can replace them but I am looking for a more cost effect solution.

Thanks for your assistance.

Susan

As the roller portion is made of aluminum I'm not sure that they will work with stainless steel. It's not something I've tried. So I'd say no, as I don't want to sell you something that may not work.

Do you think it would work on this? It's over the bathroom and doesn't leak. I believe I can remove the inner in once piece correct?

I have one of Kip's rollers, and as good as it is, you would need some serious horsepower there. Maybe a form pushing from the inside using a jack??
Dang, what caused that? I had one on the opposite side, caused by a branch. It was not as bad, and I popped it out with my hands.

That's a pretty good dent, did a bowling ball fall on it. As stated above I don't think my roller will help you out. A panel replacement would be in order here. If you found someone with a English Wheel that knows how to shrink and anneal aluminum, it could possibly be fixed but the labor would end up costing more then a panel replacement.
