    i am getting quotes for removing a dent that some dumb bitch made in the truck with her car door im assuming.(i cant prove it cuz i didnt see it) and am getting estimates. i got two different quotes and they were dramatically different. how much would you pay to remove a dent about 3 inches in diameter and fairly shallow. pics will be up later.

    I had some removed removed for my wifes Mazda, it was about 60 for each door. The dents were 4 to 5 inches long and fairly deap. Sorry no before and after pics, but PDR is great for getting door dings out.

    nice, this one is on my bedside. right in front of the curve. it looks like either a car door hit it. or someone hit it with a ball or punched it or something thats perfectly round. on guy was really kinda rude and weird.(he was like super quiet) and the other guys had a crew at an auto detailing place, and they were asking half as much as the rude guy. so im not sure.

    I went to a place behind an enterprise rental car location, they were always busy with repairs to rental cars. So they were pretty use to seeing door dings.

    yeah, they had like 5 cars there for the detailing service. i think they do a lot of cars for the dealerships because it is right in front of a honda one and literally less then a mile away from ten others

    I voted but didn't read the thread... I had hail hit my FX35 and the dealer set me up for $400 but it was damaged on the roof, both fenders, and the hood. Came out perfect and it was well worth it. Got an estimate from a private body repair shop for $4500 but it was a new truck and I didn't want all that paint work.

    I had a golf ball size dent over my driver's side door. The guy pulled the inside apart and got it from behind, plus glued a nail on the paint (I didn't watch). That dent is GONE! Plus he walked my truck and took out ones only he saw. Best $200 ever spent.

    I do PDR, if you got a quote for $105 and you got a good feeling from the guy, go for it. He will have to loosen the wheel liner and get to the back of the dent, should come out good.

    I just paid $50 to get a dent out of the driver side of the box. I slipped on some ice last winter while I was next to the truck and jabbed my elbow in the side as I went down. Now, you wouldn't know there was a dent there.
