    Paintless dent repair

    Quick story: Squirrel in garage looking for bird seed. Plastic drop spreader (fertilizer & stuff) hanging in rafters over space between car and truck. Yell at squirrel which promptly jumps into spreader which falls off rafter, bounces off floor into STS driver door. Shallow dent the size of a quarter, no paint scratch. (.22 rifle, dead squirrel. We ate it yesterday.....along with some venison backstrap)

    Fast forward to Jeff's Auto Body here on Kent Island. Andy hooks me up with a guy from Edgewater who does nothing but Paintless Dent Repair. Heard of the procedure but skeptical.........

    Friday 0915, $50 and 20 minutes later: no dent, no marks, no nothing. I cannot, for love nor money, find any evidence of the dent. No scrapes, no scratches, no ripples. Magic.

    Re: Paintless dent repair

    I have had friends that have good results with the ding pullerkits you can buy at the parts stores. They have had the same results on small "none chipped" dings. Glad to know you got the work done for $50.00; here in Richmond they want $100.00 as opening quote which seems a bit excessive. Always great to hear of a successful solution to what can be an expensive headache.

    Re: Paintless dent repair

    i had a Honda that had quite a few dings and such. Took to a place around here. dropped her off. picked up all but 2 are gone, said he pulled 15 out. he said $300, whip out cash and he says... "Cash huh, $150 and you never saw me.".. Deal! best $150 i ever spent.

    the new deville has a few i need popped. good thing i know people now.

    Thumbs up Re: Paintless dent repair

    Uhh...have a story.

    Hail damage.

    2 years ago we had a hail storm.

    My 2001 DTS was wasted. Didn't think they would fix the car. 3/4 of the car had hail damage.

    New hood, new fenders, new decklid, new mirror, new window trim, new tail light..list goes on. With rental car = $8900.

    What they could not replace. THE ROOF. On this they used PDR. Amazing results. Looks better then new. I was very impressed.

    The PDR roof looks better then the rest of the car!

    Re: Paintless dent repair

    I use CARMEDIC. go to there web site and find local dealer.

    On my 05 dodge ram I ended up doing more damage with the DING KING than the dent itself! Did not notice it until looked at the front fender from the side. It caused waves in the metal because of how it pushed against the fender in order to pull the dent out.

    But hands down the tools those guys have are crazy and its usally under 100 bucks a panel. a good sized crease from a door hitting my fender, Plus the damage I caused was 65 bucks. I wrote the dude a check for 100. cause I was happy.

    Re: Paintless dent repair

    There's a guy here in Lansing that does Paintless dent removal on the side. He did the passenger side of my '96 SLS at least 6 dings and only charged me $35. Had to tip the guy big time though, he's fast, and a super nice guy!

    Do you think you could PM me his contact information if you still have it? I'm in the Lansing area and would like to take care of a few dings. Thanks!
