Hi
Yes that is one way , the you can make a tool to Pullmax, then you can use that tool for all size.

Oand you can use bead roller as well .

Wow, that Pullmax is a monster machine. I like the idea of using a bead roller, but wasn't sure it could be used on the smaller radius holes. Sorry to clutter up your thread with my questions.

Very nice Ruban. I sold my 1952 W187 Sedan to a nice fellow in Nilsia, Finland a couple of years ago. I was lucky that it needed very little rust repair and farmed it out to a specialist.

I will be watching you perform your magic on this Cab A. You may inspire me to go practice panel welding on a W123 Coupe I bought as a project but found too rusty to bother restoring. Very inspiring.



1952 220 W187, sold to Finland; 1978 230C, sold locally; 1992 600 WALD, "Yakuza Gunship"; 1992 600SEL, daily driver "Black Pearl"; 1998 E430 Sport (RIP) now parts car, 1998 E430, #2 son's car; 2002 E320 4M Wagon #3 son's car
