    Default Dent on bonnet

    Got loads of kids playing football in the streets, looks like one has made a dent on my bonnet.

    a little hard to see in the pic but its in the middle of the center line and looks far worse than the pic,

    any ideas on were is the best place to get this fixed or is it cheaper to try and get a facelift bonnet in the right colour

    Thanks for the advice guys , i could not push it out as the dent was low down on the bonnet and it is not single skin there.

    However ive just been to the local pound shop and bought a plunger as seen in pic i just put some washing up liquid around the plunger to form a good seal, after a few goes and to my amazment it worked saving me a good bit of money

    Is that what you'd call a "bog-standard" repair?

    Sorry
