    Seems like a really good way to fix, if you do this and get a dent again your gonna be mad. Most people get this done before they sell / trade in there vehicle.

    Well, my last dent was cause of my own stupidity, ramming a door into a family members car mirror.

    They have been bugging me for a while now

    I have seen these PDR guys do some amazing things. I had a nice "half-moon" shaped ding removed from the curve of the roof line on my wife's Camry, gone completely gone. My son had the same guy remove a good sized ding from the fender curve on his TC and he got about 95% of it out, stoping only because he didn't want to cause the paint to chip.

    Got it done today, very nice guy. Reasonable rates and takes his time, does a very good job. If anyone in tampa bay/fl area has dents, i strongly reccomend chip!
