Restoring dented vintage lighter Restoration project

I bought lot of old lighters from auction for restoration. The lighters are missing parts, have dents and some rust and oxidation. I'm sure I'll be able to restore at least some of them. The lot had 4 of this type of lighters and a couple really old ones. The lighter has 3 parts. The lighter itself, a tank for extra lighter fluid and a cap. I think it's called Tommy style lighter after brand of Tommy lighters. I have no idea what the brand on it is.

I made some of my own tools from nails to push up all the dents. After getting the shell of the lighter back to orginal shape I sanded it flat because there is only so much you can do to dents on metal. The dents often stretch the metal so that I can't be only hammered back to the orginal shape. I However I got it close enough to just sand off the tiny unevenness. This was important because mirror finish will reveal the slightest bumps.

After sanding I polished it by wet sanding and polishing compound. This resulted to perfect mirror polish. The lighter was missing the spring and screw that hold the flint in place so I loaned one spare parts from the other lighters I bought. I have already ordered some spare parts but they take weeks to ship so I figured this is the best solution.

I also also changed the old wick to a Zippo wick which was the same size and the only option locally available. I also put is a Zippo flint but then I realized the old flint had been oxidized and jammed in the pipe for the flint. I used a small screwdriver to destroy the remaining of the flint. After this the lighter worked perfectly. I added a blooper at the end of the video. I was not careful with the lighter fluid and there was some on the outside of the lighter and mu hands which resulted me setting my hands on fire :D This is not very dangerous as the flame is not very hot but obviously it's never safe to be setting this on fire by accident. I hope you learned from my mistake or at least had a good laugh, I know I did.
