    Default Metal Bumping? Shrinking an "oil can"

    I've got a place on my Jeep that I'm working on and the sheet metal is stretched enough to create an oil can on the panel. I need to shrink it and have looked at a few posts on youtube to learn more about the process. So a few questions:
    1. Rather than an oxy/fuel torch can I use my TIG torch to heat the area?
    2. Would the application of dry ice improve the shrinking over a wet rag?
    3. Hammer and dolly or not? Some say it's absoolutely necessary, buy most seem not to do it.
    Thank in advance!
