i as wanting to know some other people opinions. should i get black or silver stockies for my EF. (Car: http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii24 ... 2EFGLi.jpg )

I am thinking of making my EF into an EF or EL XR6 Mock up and mate said i should get all the dints and crap fixed before i turn my car into a mock up there is only a couple of major dints that need to be fixed.
A. Front left quarter panel. http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii24 ... /EF002.jpg
B. Right behind rear drivers side door. http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii24 ... /EF001.jpg
with dint A. can i just take the panel off and lightly tap the dint out with a rubber mallet? mate said no because once a do it will start to rust ( and id rather a somewhat hard to see dint then rust :D ) and dint B. is prob how i got a couple bent axles. i know ya cant just take the rear quarter panel off so what needs to be replaced to fix it? And with my next question, while we where going over the car looking at dints i discovered that some "C U Next Tuesday has keyed my car. it's very deep so i take it that it's a respay job?

Cheers.

PS Sorry for long post. thought it would be better to do one long one rather then 3 short ones :D

If you go for the XR Mock up, then use XR wheels.

i work as a powder coater an i would suggest against it no silvers will give you anything near a chrome look an the cost of the coat will be around $45 per rim if anything i would suggest artic or pearl white looks real nice on dark colored cars
