    Default Ruddy Vandals - Roof Dents!

    AAARGH! why is that the little barstewards feel it neccessary to run over your car?! 1 big dent and 3 little dents later... arses.
    How easy/expensive is it to get them removed? they look like they're pushed in rather than creased (if that makes any sense) no paint missing..


    little boogers..

    And the worse thing about it... if I catch them and give them a hiding Id get done for it! where is the justice in that? any suggestions on Payback please!

    This happened to me once - roof and bonnet on a Focus. Funny thing was, the kid who did it was identified and confronted - his mum didn't want her precious boy (rich kid from a big house) getting in trouble with the law (he'd done 3 cars), as it might've scuppered his chances for Eton are something, so she stumped up to have each car repaired. About £3k altogether. I couldn't get the dents pulled straighaway because my own daughter was in hospital. About a week after I'd got the money I left the car outside and went up to Gt Ormond St. Middle of summer about 90 degrees. When I got back the dents were both gone, like they'd never been there and I can only presume it was the heat. Easiest grand I ever earned.

    Blimey thats a bit of luck, someone must have been smiling down on you that day! .... dont know if I'll hold my breath though, not sure we've got the weather for that anymore sadly!
    Just come back from the body shop - he says he uses a dent man who comes in on a thursday.. long story cut short, should be £150-£200 and he can do it in the morning (and theres 6 dents just spotted another few!)
    dont think thats too bad.. they need to pull the roof lining out aswell.

    20 quid (ish) a dent seems reasonable

    Think the normal prices are about £40-50 quid a dent but guess he's doing a discount because of the number of them.. 6 x £50? wwwooooooooaaww.... no way I could do that!
