    i would advise you invest in a cheap unispotter

    i got one for $100...
    haven't used it THAT much, but it seems to be decent

    got mine from harbor freight tools i think, or some variation there-of...

    then just grind to bare metal, spot weld, pull/hammer surface to desired shape and bondo...

    Yep. Or if you choose to do it sooner I could assist you. Are you just fixing the dents and then spraying it?

    there is nothing too major
    im replacing a door and the hood
    and im putting Si bumpers on and new moldings
    the only one i am worried about is on the rocker panel
    the others are no bigger than a quarter maybe five or six like that

    i was going to just pull them and send it to earl sheib
    i would like to have the entire car prepped for them
    because i hear they overspray quite a bit
    like everything taped and all the lights pulled
    so all they have to do is spray it and i dont have to worry
