    I bought this truck with massive dent between the tail light and wheel well. Brought it to a PDR guy who was skeptical but I told him do the best he could. Made it clear it would be far from perfect. The lower part of the quarter was too flemsy to get a bend on, otherwise satisfied. Fair price as well. If you are in the Mobile/Pensacola area and would like his contact info send a PM.

    In the beginning an 8lb hammer and it was ugly. You could watch the entire truck shake. Afterwords an angled rod though a hole drilled behind the tail light, followed by a plastic knockdown tapper hit many of times very lightly. Cost $50
