    Default PDR or a replacement door?

    Ever since I bought my car i've had an annoying crease in my rear passenger door. It looks like the wind has caught the door and it's hit the back of the front door.

    It's about an inch from the leading edge of the door. Does anyone know if it could be repair via paintless dent removal or would I be best off buying a s/h good door in the right colour?

    I don't want to go down the road of painting as it'll probably never look right unless the whole side of the car is painted.

    I need to get it sorted now as I will be fitting my Irmscher decals along the bottom of said door within the next few weeks

    Dent isnt very clear, can you take a picture standing from both wheels and looking at the dent, it should be repairable unless its too close to the door seam, or the metal has been stretched.

    I use Ronnie at dent devils, Nice guy to talk to and always goes the extra mile

    Cheers buddy, i've just used a pic I had in my library to show the area of the dent as it can be difficult to see My fear is that it may be too close to the seam

    Well i'll go and try to find a few different guys to get some opinions tomorrow. The costs will be about the same should I fit a door or have PDR although I have a nasty dimple dent on my rear quarter that definitely can be done at the same time
