    Default DIY dent repair?

    Hi Everyone.

    My Vec has a couple of dents in the boot. do you think using filler and touch up paint I could repair this or is a new boot req?

    thanks in advance

    this my 1st upgrade. next is a new headlamp as she has one sri and one clear headlamp. hopefully that is coming in cheap via ebay on Monday. when i collected the spoiler I also picked up a courtesy light assy with the glasses holder built in.but havnt fitted that yet as it is a bit scruffy and needs a proper clean. next spend is a remap. the i would love a cd70 with dab. what do you think should be next?
