The second one is fixable if it actually went thru.

The first one, its hard to tell if its just a nail that went in and then bent sideways. If thats the case it can be fixed, but if its a big chunk of metal making a bigger hole, then no. I'd have to take out the nail to be able to tell u.

yup, take a side plyers and pull it out.
or you can also put on water over it to see if its leaking, it will bubble if it is leaking.


Mark it with chalk before, so you dont loose the spot.
