    Default Dent

    Hi all,on arriving back to my signum last week in the supermarket carpark i niticed two small dents in the offside rear wing just above fuel cap
    These dents are only small and have not marked the paint but to me they stand out like a sore thumb
    I took the interior out to expose the metal from within hoping to push out with my thumb but i cant feel them ,just wondering if anybody knows if the rear wings are double skinned,cheers

    Don't know about the wing, but if you're trying to remove a small dent, try dry ice. I haven't tried it myself, but search youtube and there are plenty of videos on using dry ice pop out small dents.

    It depends how sharp the edges of the dent are, if its shallow then dry ice and a hairdryer can be used to pop it out.

    The dents have no sharp edges it looks like somebody has thumped it and left two knuckle marks in the wing,been on youtube and seen it done with dry ice but dont have much confidence in that tbh,seen one film on youtube where they stick a double sided sticky tab to the small dent and then apply what looks like a twelve inch piece of balsa wood to the tab and pull it out that way and then get these tabs off with a hairdryer,thanks for your replies
