I am tempted to just put them on anyway.
I am afraid to hammer the dents out!

Will get you my measurements and some photos of my project. Cruise around for more albums that are public,

Dena,

I use an English Wheel to work banana wraps. A custom body shop may smooth yours out for you if you don't have access to one.

Regards,

Kevin

Any old school body guy or hot rodder should be able to knock this out for you. Beer and pizza will get you some wheel time in many small shops in my neck of the woods.

I just bought a shot put on craigslist ($12) and heated the banana wraps a little if it's cold.... I did mine in summer when it was hot.
Just rolled it around to get the shape I wanted.
I put a towel underneath to not scratch it anymore.
Then I just polished them up.
There not great, but good enough.
I'll get a picture later tonight,

TIMK
