    While I’d love to tell you a sorry that involves Boulder hoping and steep roundabouts the truth is my wife left the door open on her Honda and I ran into it.

    Anybody have any tips on the beat way to get this fixed? Doesn’t look like any paint was affected just two dents.611D25A7-9D49-4B4B-9F95-1ACA9E7B4C31.jpg253F2708-0A8A-42B6-B5E7-784C28F5E0D2.jpg

    You could try a PDR repair. But that crease probably won’t come fully out. If not you’d be looking at a new skin from a body shop. You’d have to take it in to get a quote.

    Unfortunately that's not going to work well because it's actually creased instead of a dent. It's very hard to work a crease out of metal, the paint being black in color doesn't help matters either as it shows everything.

    I just had 3 dents removed by PDR. One was a crease and you’d never know it was there. You’d be amazed at what those guys can do.

    Now to be fair, he ran into the Honda! Maybe charge her with depraved indifference? :)

    PS: I concur; might as well give PDR a try.

    That first dent is rough. Live with it, love it, and put a few more dents in it!

    I got a similar dent in the same place due to a poor turn decision offroading. I opted to leave it and have a conversation piece. If you have a good story leave it, if not I'd consider running through insurance a body shop will need to do a decent amount of work to get that right.

    Yea, you shouldn’t be allowed to be married as careless as you are.

    Remember from physics, if two objects collide and one is stationary, the object in motion is the cause.
