Re: dint in the ea

You should be able to push it out from the inside, I can't guarantee it won't leave the metal rippled though. If it does it'll be a bog job AFAIK :(

hey

whats wrong with yar ,, i want that done bye smoko(9am)

it looks like it will come close but with out a closer look its to hard to say.

did you do it you self or what, was it bought like that.

Panel work is not about labour any more , its about experance in how to go about the job affectly.

The right push in the right place is the diffrence between going home or going home with a pay packet.

And has it been do before ,,is the filler all ready in there , push on it and it will crack the old repaier and your phucked .

just shop around there are decent blokes out there.

Re: dint in the ea

Ouch.. not a nice one.

Anyhow, as mentioned above, with a good push in the right place, it should pop out ok.
If your going to give it a go, take you time.. and start off by using your hands, rather then a hammer.

If you start hitting it with a hammer.. expect to repaint the panel.


Good Luck

Re: dint in the ea

Maybe go see one of those dent doctors? I had a dent on my bonnet once on another car I owned from a drunk friend. I thought I was going to have to get the bonnet redone for sure. $60 later and this bloke popped it out and didnt even harm the paint.

i bought the car like this, also with a scratch on the passenger side, and rust in the top of the back wheel arches.

Can't quite tell from the pic how large the dent is (st00pid laptop) but why not try this method:

1) Obtain a (clean, preferably unused) wide-diameter dunny plunger

2) Gently "plunge" over dent

That could hopefully work.

i got 70% of it out, just a bit near the fold above the bumper to get out. i just used a block of wood on the inside of the boot running along the edge of the fold and pushed against the bit of wood with my bear hands.

that day i had a go at getting rid of the lip on my front 2 guards, where my tyres hit when going up steep drives. thats not a job for me as i cant move it 1 bit. how much to get them lipped?
