Roller wanted also

I sure would like to have that awesome roller when you have more. As I am just starting complete renovations on the little toaster " 67 Overlander". I am in need of so much this seems to be a great starting point, lol

A question about its use. Do you have some on hold a place of wood on the opposite side to work out lines?

I don't restore so I've got some serious ego even responding - but I'd say NOT UNLESS you're pressing way too hard! The thing that you've got to remember is that aluminum is pretty soft, and will ding easily - so it would probably bulge easily too. You'd be far better having to go over the same area three or four or five times than you'd be to turn a ding into a bulge.

A backing plate ,aka 2X4, will work fine and I have used them. if there is a crease in the 2024-T3 skin you will be able to minimize it but not remove it completely. The end cap skins you will do better with as they are a softer alloy. In using a backing plate just be sure that you follow the roller as you could stretch the skin if you are not careful.

That sounds good. I bought the LT790 shape tip roller. It's only 1.75" wide, including the brackets. The roller it self is only 1.25" across. Yours sounds much better. I would like to get one of yours if possible.

Ok up date! I used the roller, worked ok. I did not drop the end cap, just cap an access panel to get to the dents. Looks much better, could be better, but still looks better than the front end. Overall u say it was worth $25.

Thank you. The pictures are kind.

It's not perfect, but it works. This will never be a show trailer, I just want a functional camper. It's a ++ that it looks cool.

Yes I have the barrels and handles but still have to make the brackets that attaches the barrel to the handle, but life has a way of interrupting. I have had an absolutely terrible last couple of weeks with my mom taking a fall and then the evacuation of my son due to the floods. I have not forgotten that the rollers are still on my plate.
