Bast-ards Ding my Brand New Truck

So I have my DCSB 4x4 TRD for 2 weeks and park out in the boonies so no one dings me, but some basdid manages to ding my rear driver side door.
Not big, but is driving me nutz. Can this be pulled out so close to the edge of the door?

2 weeks ago brandy new:


Now with son of a beyatch ding:


Thanks,

Find a body shop that does paintless dent removal. They should be able to get that out.

That really sucks!! I'd probably cry...

Be prepared for a bunch of "it's a truck, quit whining" guys to come on here and start telling you how it's a truck and don't buy one unless you wheel it and use it like a truck...

But I feel your pain!! I'm in upstate NY and I'm just praying I don't have any of those when summer comes and I can finally clean and wax it!

thanks for the replies, as dumb as it sounds I want to get it fixed. I expect the "its a truck" replies, but I was still in the honeymoon phase, have not made my first payment.

I think I will get it fixed, then put on some sliders so the a holes will hit them first.

Nope!! I Would be just as mad! Nothing wrong with wanting to keep your $30k truck looking like new! Especially before the first payment! Eek...

Update with the dent removed!

fixed...

Well I had Hayes from atlantadings.com come by today and fix the ding. Completely impressed since this ding was in a weird spot and I thought it could not be fixed. He was on time and went to work right away. Could not be more pleased. I was really bumming before, but now the truck is back to new. Recommended for anyone near Atl.

On a side note, some other places I check were more expensive and had some kids working there .... not that there is anything wrong with that but I feel more comfortable with someone with years of experience to work on the truck. Here is an after pic...the only reflections are from my garage. 15 minutes of work:

Don't feel bad, I got a big crack in my windshield after 2 months of owning the truck.

Hey it is a truck and it is going to get banged up but i would personally rather ding it up myself rather then some dick head throwing there door open into the side of it.

Nice, I am glad for you that he was able to fix it. That is a difficult location being so close to the edge. When it is in the crimped edge of the panel it is usually almost impossible to get in there. I had my truck done about a year ago when the truck turned 10 years old (birthday gift to my truck) and had about ten small dings fixed perfectly; only one on the edge could not be fixed.

I really don't mind the ding or dents if I did it myself. . .

I get pissed when its someone elses carelessness. . . .

so I understand your pain.
