I was over at a friends house, and, as the driveway was full, I parked on the street (Which is no problem... Its safe) However, as usual, The people across the street decided to throw a party, and by party, I mean get drunk. Anyways, That night I got locked out of my car (This was during the winter, so, its been a while (DOH!), due to frozen locks. So, I just stayed over there, and the door opened up in the afternoon. Then, I noticed a Dent, RIGHT behind the drivers side rear door line, right smack dab in the middle of the area between the door handle and the plastic trim piece. (Not on the door itself, the Rear QP. The door is completely unharmed) It was quite obvious that one of them backed into my car. :shoot (There was a white car in the driveway when I went inside for the night, and when I noticed the dent there was a little white paint in the door line, which rubbed off easily)
It isnt a Massive, deep dent. It really doesnt bother me that much, just the fact that I know its there, and it does make it look odd (Changes the reflections, you know what I mean) So, While I'm in this mood of car improvements (Just minor stuff, Such as Detailing it (Which is why I mention this) and the all red tail lights (DIY Style :D)) I was wondering if there is any good way to get rid of that dent, short of taking it to a body shop. Anyone out there have any good suggestions for me?
(Oh, and BTW, I could go the body filler route, but, I want other ideas (As, I have no paint and no painting experience (On a Real car atleast... I have done R/C cars, but that is different)
2 options ; locate a "paintless dent removal" company in your town / area on craigslist (listings are usually free) or take rear panel out and lightly tap dent out with a rubber mallard and a 2x4 piece of lumber (if you have the room)
Right, in line with c1apton, I think there's a franchise outfit called Dent Wizard or something like that. I don't know how they work their magic, but they sound just right for the type of dent you describe. To get specific names and references, call some new car dealers in town, I've been told they often use outfits like this to take care of minor dings their cars get being on the lot and whatnot. Another advantage is I think these places also come to you in many instances.
