    Task Discussion No.1

    sorry I, wanted to start this yesterday but was quite busy..
    Ok so here it is. The Speculations section of the Thread:

    Task Discussion Number One
    Stainless Steel Recovery


    I have seen plenty of YouTube videos on how to get it back shining or remove a small dent. But THIS is beyond your average dent.


    I am afraid knocking this even is not an option? Has anybody dealt with such a freak?

    I have read this very interesting article on filling the antenna hole.
    Could I possibly cut out that section and fill it in with a dent free stainless steel replacement, by simply erasing the welding marks?
    It mentioned 304 stainless steel panels along with 316 welding rods.

    You would need a skilled SS welder to repair that. Not impossible, but not common either.

    If you were to replace the door, it would be much cheaper to do it before it leaves the US. Shipping a door internationally from the US, safely, would be expensive.

    One possibilty would be to see if Ed Uding in DMC-EU, Netherlands has a door. Would be easier to get/ship tahn one from teh US.

    I own a Catering venture. 90% of all my equipment is made of Stainless steel.
    Believe me, I have the best available task force to handle stainless steel.

    I would like to see if this has been done before or if I will be the first to accomplish it.

    I have seen ordinary fenders that were damaged "beyond repair" to be straightened out into as smooth as a baby's behind.

    I'm sure it could be repaired if you have a skilled enough person, and it would be really cool to see it repaired, but I think the labour hours required would make it more expensive than a new door.

    You are right! But with the going hourly rates in my country, I could have this done for less than USD100 So no worries for me here.
    Anybody else seen or heard of such a job done with a patch?
    I looked all over this forum but could not nail anything with the search engine

    On first reading, I thought a "Catering Venture" was some sort of boat

    The were a couple of pictures of a car on here that the PO had cut huge rectangles out of the rear quarter panel for ducting or something. The new owner was going to patch a new piece of SS in.

    Unfortunately, I can't find that picture/thread at the moment. But it will turn up.
