Dent removal tips?

I basically have dents from people opening their door on all 4 doors and now with spring here i can't stand looking at them anymore. I have been looking at DentOut, anyone use it or have any other recommendations?


Thanks

Good luck with dry ice. I love how people add their 2 cents when they haven't done it themselves. A local Subaru deaership near me has a paintless dent removal person who comes a few times a week, not sure how its done though. I've been thinking about going.

agreed with the first part. very much so.

usually involves going in between the door skin and the interior door frame and using long skinnier versions of pry bars to massage the dent out, then a nice touch to smooth it out...

if they are good, it can look great. if they suck... RUN!

chances are if a dealership has them coming in on a regular basis, the guy is good.

I've gotten pretty reasonable quotes from people like the "Ding King" and "Mr. Dent" to have them just do it. At least one of these guys just does this on the side, so a good cash offer will probably do the trick.

Just pay a pdr guy. I had my 9000 done two years ago. Cost me a little over $100 and he found at least half a dozen dents I didn't know were even there.

I had all sorts of little minor dents and my parents had them removed for $200 I think. This time around, who knows since my HS parking lot played havoc with my poor baby

I highly suggest PDR. For under $200 and maybe two hours time, you'll be amazed.
