Now i dont have alot of money so if i can just hit this out and touch it up it would be best !

How can i go about this? Would i need to respray the whole door ? The front one only needs a touch up but the back needs to be hit out !

So sorry to hear this, some people are Rsoles. :( :evil:

I know you say that money is tight for you but maybe one of these mobile dent repairers would be the way to go? They might even be able to arrange a pay off plan for you?

Im thinking about trying to hit it out from the inside and then i know the paint will crack but the sand top half of the door back and use colour coded paint to go over it yes? Or see what wreckers have in the way of Everglade Green doors !

you can try removing the door trim, a piece of wood which is big enough to fit on the dent (from the inside) but small enough not to cause another dent (since the door is curved) when you wack it with a hammer to push it outward. To stop yourself from pushing out the dent too far, have another plank of wood big enough to cover the dent from the outside...either get a mate to hold it or stick it down tight with tape some how. Then wack away hoping that it will sit semi flush with the door. use a rag/cloth between the wood and outside part of the door to prevent more scratches.

This is not a professional way of doing this...it's just a suggestion which I have tried and worked on smaller dints on my older car...enough to hide the dint...but still imperfect.

phong =P~

I understand what you are saying, maybe Aurora 98 (member) could help? he has a detailing shop in SA and he is from Virginia. He might just be the guy to help you and you ARE a member here. :D
