MichaelConsidering what these cars have been through over the years why not just cut out the dented sections (assuming we are not talking about dents that are feet in length), hammer them back into shape and weld them back in. P

Subject: [Healeys] Frame dents

The BN2 that I'm restoring has, unfortunately,  been jacked up a couple of times with equipment that has dented the bottom of the frame. I  would like to correct this. I've heard of welding studs on and using a slide hammer and drilling hole(s) in the upper surface and using a long punch then welding up the holes.Anyone know of a better method for this?I'm reasonably proficient with a TIG welder.
