How to keep a panel popped out

Iím doing body work on my 70 C10 longbed fleetside, working on the bedsides. At the rear of one, the outer panel is dented and popped in. I can pop it out by pushing from the other side but it wants to pop back in. Iíve been doing studs and a slide hammer around the outside but itís only helping minimally. Do I need to cut the whole area off and work at it that way? Iím new to bodywork if it isnít obvious.

Re: How to keep a panel popped out

Any dent causes a stretch. You need to remove the stretch, where it occurred. Looks like you are guessing and possibly adding more work for yourself.. Read here for some theory... pay close attention to tight oil can part 2

Re: How to keep a panel popped out

i found that a shrinking disc is like having a gold nickle when it comes to shrinking a oilcan...especially if you have access to both sides of the panel
i just did a weld job on a inner fender and had a hard oilcan....a few minutes with the disc and it turned soft and a few more passes and it was gone
check out utube for shrinking disc...its a amazing tool

Re: How to keep a panel popped out

I've always done it like this. Just did my stepside a few days ago with this method. https://youtu.be/J1liRlo4FjU

Its starts off slow but he really goes in depth with it. My uncle taught me this in the 70s . Just old school and works well
