    I am aware of it and while I would love to attend, I don't think I could make it nor do I think I'd want to take Emma out to Moab in her current state.

    Acupuncture Therapy
    Well before there were guys with Jeep JK Wranglers who inadvertently allowed their doors to fly open and put a nice dimple in cowl, there were guys who owned C101 Jeepster Commandos who did the exact same thing. Granted, the Commandos did come with built in mechanical door straps but time would take their toll on them and they would break and well, you know the rest. Unfortunately, Emma was no exception to the rule and both sides of her cowl had pretty good dents put into them and unfortunately, getting in from behind to tap them out is near impossible. Needless to say, a little acupuncture therapy was needed to help rid her of her dimples.

    The dimple on the passenger side cowl wasn't too bad but was still deep enough that I wanted to have it pulled out.


    On the driver side, it was pretty clear that Emma not only had her cowl hit hard in the past, it had been repaired once before and then hit again or maybe even a few times since.


    Chipping away at the old bondo reveled the original dent was pretty deep.


    Foundation can be good to help hide wrinkles but it should never really be laid on this thick.


    Cleaning up the paint on the passenger side to give me a good clean surface to work with.


    Applying stud welds to the affected area.


    Using a slide hammer to carefully tap the surface back out, the results are looking good.


    After applying a little skin cream, smoothing things out and applying a bit of base makeup, here's what her cowls look like now.




    Here's a shot of both the repaired fender and cowl on the passenger side.


    I apologize for not documenting more than I have but I hope this helps give a taste of the things I've been working on.

    Thanks! It's been a while since I've done body work so I'm a little rusty (no pun intended) but it's fun.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
