Dent Removal Question from richard sabino

Submitted on 26/06/2008

can the damage on the pictures be repaired by paintless method? Model: ford mondeo 2001

It could possibly be done, but it's unlikely and it may just be best to take it to a good bodyshop to begin with.

The problem with this is likely to be access to the back. It's very likely that it will be double skinned here, and dropping the headlining to get to it is more involved than you might imagine. This pushes the cost up, so you could start getting to the point where it's no more ecconomical to have paintless dent removal over a bodyshop.

Some bodyshops charge a fortune because they mostly work for insurance companies, so they can afford to put their prices up for retail because they are always busy. On the other end of the scale, some bodyshops are cheap... because they are pants!
But if you shop around you should be able to find somebody who does good work at a reasonable price. This article will help.
