Recently picked up a 1994 lebaron gtc. I know it's not a hot rod or classic but it's my dream ride. 1 month into owning it this happend. My 6 year old sneezed I turned my head and lost control and hit a semi trailer on the interstate. Need some tips on the best way to get the damage out.

Thanks
Matthew

Matthew, That must have been one heck of a sneeze. I hope everyone is O.K. I did work in a body shop a spell ago but, I was a painter. That being said, I did pick up some tips. You will probably need to go the slide hammer aka dent puller route. As you were moving forward during the hit, the dent is from front to back. You want to work the metal in the opposite direction as it happened to ease it returning to its shape. The holes made by the slide hammer will need to be heated then cooled quickly with a wet rag to shrink that area as it will be overstretched while getting the rest of the panel back where it was. I hope this is a starting point and that someone that knows more jumps in with more or better advice. Mike
