mad dinted my car - NOT HAPPY JAN

my garage attacked my car today while i was reversing in and left 2 noticible dints on the rear left hand quater panel

basically what happend was i backed up on my drive way on an angle i was trying to straighten up i saw i had about 20cm space so i kept reversing then i suddenly hear this noise from the back so i jump out of my car and my mud guard is pushed in between 2 bricks

i have pics but they are too large to put on and i still don't have photoshop to resize them so if some one can please do it for me it will be much appreciated

i've already started work on the car i filled it up with bog and plan to primer it and spray it tomorrow so it will be nicely fixed for monday

but i have a problem -- does any one know where i can get ea falcon (jarrah) metalic paint from or know any one who mixes auto paint cheap so i can get it fixed cause it pisses me of looking at the car with bog all over it

Bad luck Chief. At least you can do the repairs yourself.

BTW, e-mail me the pics and I will resize them and post them: lmao@swiftdsl.com.au.

Re: dinted my car - NOT HAPPY JAN

my new boot strut came off today while i was doing a transmission service, boot came down and hit my toolbox and now has a little dint. by the same method i think i might put the toolbox on my rocker cover and slam the bonnet. ill get a bulge like the BA XR8s.

if you're just after a spraypack, try bigw or supercheap auto... I dont know how rare your colour is, but Stark White you can buy off the shelf.

Re: dinted my car - NOT HAPPY JAN

I dont understand what you did...???? You backed into your garage wall...? Anyways, from my understanding bog = bad. Get it beat out. It's worth it in the long run.

Re: dinted my car - NOT HAPPY JAN

I'd like to know how its worth it in the long run. if the bog fell out 10 times and he had to keep re-patching it he still wouldnt be up the price for a panelbeater to do it.

just beat it out roughly and bog it. it'll look good for 2-3 years before you have any problems with it, and you probably wont even have the car any more after that.

Re: dinted my car - NOT HAPPY JAN

I think you just answered your own question Barry. The Damage doesn't sound bad so I wouldn't have thought it would cost much to have it beat out. I'm not a panel beater though..

Re: dinted my car - NOT HAPPY JAN

If it's the rear quarter panel, I'd just beat it out myself, personally.....
Anyway he'd still need to bog it a little to clean up the job. It's damn near impossible to beat metal out smooth, once it's been dented - it stretches too much.
