That which would destroy, would also create.

As noted in an earlier post--I backed our truck into my little blue hatchback car.

The rear fender was dented-in so far that it looked as if the tire might rub against the sheet metal if driven over a bump. What I did as a temporary fix is to mount a large C-clamp to the fender. Then I attached tow hooks to the clamp and ran the strapping through hooks on the front of the truck. A bit of careful backing-up and the sheet metal was pulled clear of the tire.

Odd that a moment of stupidity requires large amounts of cleverness to set right.

Note: I realize that it is not a particulary new insight that it is easier to destroy than to create. It is just daunting how many times I get reminded of this fact.
