Never heard of one but in visualizing an F-100 door think of the window area. With the window down, of course, I would think a wood block and porta power with foot end against the wall. And work slow. The door would have to be partially open and braced to alllow for give without springing back. Been awhile since I've worked in a shop so there may be a tool like that.

I've done that before, you clamp a 2x4 to the door and twist. That's how you take door window noise out of japanese cars.

They work pretty good. I use mine all the time at work.

It locks into your door latch and hooks onto the striker so you can bend the door up or down.

If you need the brand name, I can look at mine at work tomorrow.

Later,

Doug
