Thanks Ron. It's a really fast way of doing large stuff like that.

This would be a job for an experienced tech and I don't know what your skill level is. The bottom crowned area where the paint is blown off is the worst so start there using lots of heat. Put a few pushes under the crown to help it move and knock it down as soon as possible. Then do the same to the other 2 crowned areas,

You need a large capacity gun for this. The standard PDR gun will not put out enough glue. I use an Anyyion brand gun for this. The 150 watt / 300 watt model
