Skin Zipper Air Hammer Driver Door-Skinning Tool is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from door skin, no go! I bought this tool awhile back and recently used it to do a lower skin on a ram 2500. I watched the eastwood vids first and followed the instructions. The tool just would not put enough force on the sheet metal to do the job. and the angle on the sill was impossible to get without damage. Now this may have been my impact gun, and in all fairness I did not have a second one to compare with. I did try higher pressure with no luck. Id stick with a traditional skin hammer and dolly for this job, or at least have these tools on hand as backup, if this is your daily driver being repaired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked pretty good Used it to put on a full door skin on a 70 Chevy pickup. Worked good for the full door, it was a little more difficult on the door patch panel I used it on couldn't use the second step on the door patch had to finish it up with a hammer and dolly. And I still had a little body work to do along the door edges but I likely would have also if I had just used a hammer an dolly. Not a miracle tool, but it did save a lot of time especially on the full door skin. Going in the tool box in case I need it in the future and well worth what I paid for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay, not as easy as the video I guess it worked okay. Used it for door skin on 65 Mustang. Had to use hammer an dolly in order to get the first step to work. Then had to really force the Skin Zipper for the second part. Mine didn't move as fast as the video. Also tried using the 3m Adhesive but that didn't help, also didn't want more crude along the area where I'm gonna weld. Then afterwards had some little dents that are gonna have to be fixed. But was easier then using the hammer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work. If your installing cheap second rate body panels at 22 Gauge of thinner, you might be ok, but the thicker panels that I purchased for a 57 Chevy pickup, I'm guessing 18 or 20 Gauge, forget it. Step 2 is not happening. The gap on the tool just isn't large enough for the thicker metal to crimp down enough to run through the tool, it just keeps binding and getting stuck. Nice try but they need to make this tool with and adjustable thickness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good tool , works like the video says. The Skin Zipper door skinner tool worked great for me. I had to peel the skin off my 78 Ford truck door to repair some rusted metal. I' not a body man, but with the Skin Zipper, putting the door skin back in place came out looking like a pro did the work. I have a 70 Nova I'm restoring and have door rust on it too. I am going to get an extra replacement head for the Skin Zipper just to have to have on hand.

About Skin Zipper Air Hammer Driver Door-Skinning Tool

1. Step One allows the technician to form the edge of the door skin to an initial 45 degree angle by holding the tool at a right angle to the door. No hammer and dolly work required here.

2. Step Two allows the technician to complete the final form by using the tool at a 45 degree angle. Two side slot widths are included for thick or thin sheet metal skins.

When completed minimal finishing may be required on the corners and body lines. Skin Zipper reduces technician arm fatigue from hammer and dolly method as well as door refinishing time. The head will skin approximately 10 door skins and is easy to replace when it wears out.

Labor/Material Savings: Saves the technician arm fatigue and up to 60 minutes of labor and assembly time by easily skinning the door with minimal refinish required to paint.
