    Default Dented my car!

    Was driving onto site the other day, raining and could hardly see anything, lots of cars parked up, swung round the last parked car, only to swing into a cone which must have been stuck to the floor somehow. Now i'm stuck with a small (50mmx50mm) dent with a few orange scratches. Any idea how to rid of this?

    depends where the dent is - if its metal might be able to "stroke" it out
    if its plastic hot air heater left for a while may soften the area enough to pop back

    Smart repair? Unless you can push it out yourself and then some hard wotk with scratchx or similar. All depends on the depth of the dent and scratches. Pics?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Got carried away in the post, my bad! It's on the passenger's side front quarter panel, just above the wheel arch, slightly towards the front. Not on the wheel arch itself!

    The scratches aren't too bad, and it's not a big dent, i'll try get a picture of after, with some artificial lighting!

    one of the smart repair guys - I have contact details for one who does a great job around Wton if you want. Much cheaper than using the website as he has to pay commission if you do. Its a chipsaway guy - he has done a few jobs for my family all done well and a fair price. If you have any other chips / dings or even another family members car to do you get a better deal. he can work on a second job while the first dries and keep prices down.

    Give him a ring if you want, Richard Hamilton, 01925 234620 or mobile 07885 500565
