I’ve always wondered why NASCAR teams use hammers to beat the fenders off the tires when the driver hits the wall. Why haven’t the teams come up with fender repair tools that fit in the wheel well and have a pneumatic pressure plate that has the shape of the original fender lip, kind of like a Hurst tool? If they designed a tool like that, they could press out the fender to original spec in a matter of seconds. Any reason why no one has developed such a tool?
