    I have an 07 tacoma prerunner sr5 and it has a nasty dent on the left side right around the the fender flare. was wondering if there is any way to remove the fender flare so I can remove the dent.

    Will heating it and the rapid cooling work on a big dent? The dent I have is about 1.5 ft. long.

    Just uploaded a pic of the dent. Does anyone know if removing the fender flare will give me access to the dent?

    No, the inner wheel well is still in the way.

    Pop the cubby out of the bed side and you can get behind it from the top.

    This looks essentially the same as fixing your dent with dry ice, and I've heard the dent just pops back out when the weather turns hot again (summer)-- though I don't get how, that's just what I've heard :notsure:

    I have a few dents on my tailgate that I'd like to make disappear :)
