If there are no creases and and the paint is intact, maybe a good "paintless dent removal" guy can help? I am told they use suction cups and heat. I have used them several times (once on the V by the dealership) with great results.

Bummer!!!!

Shit.:banghead: Don't feel bad one of my employees damaged my front left fender by being a lazy ass and not lifting up the forks while driving the forklift.
Also, some bastard threw an egg on my car and left a nice mark the next morning. Next, my father was backing up his car out of the driveway and scratched my front bumper. Finally, my entire rear right wheel has a huge curb rash. Getting it all repaired next week.

No sweat. A PDR = Paintless Dent Repair guy can get that out no problem. It should cost you about $100 Max.

Now to help you with this apply CVP's law of retribution. Buy a gas powered chain saw and return to the scene of this heinous act and teach that crab tree a lesson. Nobody F's with my V. :lildevil:

Barry007 - The paintless dent removal guys work wonders. I had a small dent right above the gas filler. They glued on some pins and were able to remove the dent. :)

Barry: Who's your dealer? When I got my bushings installed at Don Massey, an older couple had their older DeVille in to have a bunch of grocery-store dents removed. I didn't see it in the "before" condition, but it looked nearly perfect in the "after" condition. The service guy said they use someone "on the outside" who comes in and does wonders. As the guys stated earlier in this thread, you may have to shell out a few clams, but it can be done. :D Randy

i'll ask the guys at Don Massey next time i'm in there - i try to avoid them as much as possible.

Thanks for the advice (and refresher physics lessons).

Born and raised in Bay City, MI. Diehard UofM fan. Boys our season just ended. First Notre Damnit, now Wussconsin. We're cooked for this year. If we lose to Michigan State next week and Ohio State later on I'll just kill myself. :banghead:

Muck Fichigan. Go Boilers! Go Hawks! Go Bucks! Go Illini!(at least try):Poke:

My wife and I have a good bit of the Big Ten covered, (3 for her, 1 for me) and all four of our schools really dislike michigan. For some reason Michigan State is not despised at the same levels.

We do like the state of Michigan, however.

Yes, I know this is off topic, but all this U of M love demands a response.:cool2:

:helpless:

There is a reason that my brother lives halfway across the country from the rest of the family. Part of that reason is his obvious failure to appreciate the superiority of the Illini. His wife (the best thing he has managed to come up with so far and maybe the reason we still admit he is part of the family) has an Illini history, so we do have some hope.

Barry007, I am certain that you won't be able to tell there was a problem when the paintless dent guy gets through with your car.

Phooey. It was a rough day for us saturday. Purdue lost, the illini got CRUSHED, and Iowa lost big. The only thing that eased the blow was that Iowa got beat by the OSU.

6 days after I took delivery of my V some butt nugget opened his door into my right rear fender. 4 days after that, someone got it with a briefcase, or something. I am pondering leaving the dents for a while just toward off more damage!

i can understand why OSU and M don't get along, but why there is this anger from the lower tier I'll never understand :histeric:.

Not to thread jack my own thread, but I think all of college football is in a massive state of parody this year. There's not a single unbeatable team out there...even mighty USC looked weak verse the ugly ducklings - too bad they are the biggest challenge for them this year in the Weak 10.

C'mon Loyd...ruin Sparty's season for me...just win baby.:cloud9:

:histeric: With a two and half year old not yet out of diapers, this was a GREAT description of people who ding cars!!!

With 5-1/2 degrees from UofM between my wife and I, we are Michigan first, the state of Michigan second, then very pro-Big Ten conference (yes, including OSU :crying: ), and very down on any California schools ("SC ... who's that? Southern Christian, or South Carolina, or Slippery _ock?"), and can't stand Notre Dame.

Wow! Where's this thread going? :confused:
