I have a couple small ripples in my rear 1/4
take a look and see if you can tell me if Ima have to replace the skin or is there another way to fix it?

those are easily fixed since you can get to them from the inside-----use a hammer and dolly-----use the hammer from the inside and the dolly on the outside-------just becareful not to make more dents----take it slow and work the metal------you might have to use a little filler once you get them pretty straight----sometimes just a good heavy prmier like polyester and lots of blocking can get them perfect after you have worked them out---hard to tell exactly how bad they ae from those pics----but they just look like push dents-----no biggy

no bro--- a dolly is a small flat piece of iron used to absort most of the blows from the hammer------people used pieces if train tracks as dolly's before---------------if you go to an autobody supply store they will show you what i am talking about---they come in different shapes and sizes some w/ handles some w/ out-------kind of like a miniture anvil that you can hold in one hand as you use the hammer in your other and compress the metal panel in between the two of them------peace
