Eastwood Perfect Panel Prep Tool® is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT PANEL PREP TOOL is great!!! I've been using a flange tool for years now, for smaller, tighter detailed jobs this Prep Tool is perfect! The bead will be just sub-surface, so minimal grinding/distortion. I've done jobs with flat sheet and now curved and the panels actually stiffen up a bit, which is great (no "oil canning") to preserve body shape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meets Expectations Works as advertised and does the job you need it to do. A little on the pricey side but worth it when you need to keep from grinding away metal with the weld.

Will this tool work on curved patches or panels

Asked by: shine on
This tool will be difficult to use on curved patches. It would just take some time to bend smaller sections down at a time.
