    I've used the cutoff wheel and found it difficult when it comes to rounded corners. The best advice I can give you is to suck it up and start cutting! You can't finish if you don't start! LOL

    Have any Ideas on how to fix the dent you see on the front of the hood? you can tell by the sand marks where the dents are.

    Oh man, I'm not the person to ask about body work! I absolutely hate doing it. Those guys don't get paid enough in my opinion! But having said all that, if you can get in behind it then a body hammer and anvil would be best. But I'm guessing that is not the case. Short of that there is always trying to shrink the metal. What happens when you get a dent is that you usually end up stretching the metal and trying to get it flat again is the challenge. Shrinking involves heating up the metal and quenching it very fast. The problem is that you don't want to distort other parts of the hood as well. But like I said, I am certainly no expert with bodywork.
