I picked up some of Sunsdahls' grill dies awhile back, knowing I was going to have to tackle my grill. They, are still in the box...but my charging issue has returned, so that comes first. I have done some body work before, but not a lot of hammer/dolly work. It would be great if there was a "learning" video for these, but have yet to find anything. Anyone got any link to a video...or any tips, would be greatly appreciated. I have often thought of dropping grill/dies off to somebody who is good at doing this sort of thing as I do have other things to do...but...on somewhat of a budget, as wife had a stroke back in May..so been trying to do as much as I can myself...when time allows and I can get a tad of "me" time...which helps the stress of going from a husband, to basically a caregiver. It is...a tough deal, no matter how you try to spin it...for anyone who has had to go thru this. My prayers are with you.

There should be a paper with the instructions on how to use them. A couple of short 2x4's also help hold the grills.

I don't know what those dies look like, experiment with them, use your imagination, like Red/Green said" any tool can be the right tool". I ain't much good at body work either but I like hammers, the smell of bondo and paint and I got a small iron pile. Don't have any idea how much time I got on this grille but it's a lot. The seam on the top right was split open and pushed in, spot welds broken and a hole poked through it and several bars were bent. I'd tap on it with a hammer and what ever looked good in the iron pile, get mad and walk away for a couple hours or days and start again.

Time and patience, you'll get it. Here's a better picture showing the right side of the grille where it was smashed.
