yup, had it parked out a friends place on oaks day. I come back to find a knee size dint in the right hand panel... now i gotta get around to fixing it coz some bastard was probably getting his rocks off on my car.

anyway, Is there anything i can do myself to get this out? no paint has been chipped and it looks like it has just been popped in. I'm a bit poor at the mo so i dont think i could pay to get a panel beater to have a look at it.

Cheers.


*UPDATE*

Had my next door neighbour look at it, he's an old car restorer and a panel beater before that. had the dint out in a good 15 minutes. all sorted!

A good paintless dent removal place could fix it for you.

Is it in a door or one of the quarter panels?

if its int he door, if its not too deep you could probably try take the door trim off and try to tap it out lightly with your hand or even a rubber mallet...

Push the dent back out, will look quite alot better than having a big get-f**k dent in there, for the time being.

Removed an elbow sized dent on my old ladies corolla at the paintless dent removal place, cost us $70. As long as its not on a body line they can remove it. They use magnets and s**t...
