Here is where the pick hammer comes into play. Remember that ridgeline in the metal we spoke of earlier? The pick hammers job is to flatten that ridge while the slide hammer is pulling the dent. Our body technician, Roy Landgrave, kept pressure on the dent with the body hammer, while he lightly tapped the ridgeline in the metal. This is where patience and method come into play. Small steps work the metal a little at a time.
