    So I started a new job today, and the parking lot was extremely tight. After several attempts to back out of my parking spot I hit the car behind me. I have a quarter sized dent in the rear painted bumper. Does anyone know if a paintless dent place can pull this out? I got most of the scratches out allready.

    I left a note on the car I hit...but no phone calls yet. I hope it wasn't one of my new co-workers!

    First off, thank you for leaving a note.

    You're lucky you didn't slam your truck too hard. I'm on the hook for $3100 because someone backed into me and dented in my bed side panel.

    Yes, I would think that a paintless dent place should be able to fix it. I was thinking that I could get a set of body dollies and hammer the dent out of mine to make it look respectable.
