Dent Removal Question from Ian Taylor

Submitted on 15/08/2010

Hi, It looks like someone must have reversed into my car while it was parked. There are two dents on the front right wing (bonnet area). The top one has a crease running through it. In both dents the paint is ok (the white marks on the photo is just dirt). In terms of access the mini bonnet is double skinned although there is a small gap (shown in the second photo). I've managed to get a bit of the dent out myself through this gap although don't have the tools to do it properly. Is this something youc an fix? Do you know how much it would cost? Thanks Ian Model: Mini Cooper 2003


It looks like you have two dents in the picture, or it could be a reflection below.

So I will link you to our prices, then you can get an idea . If you wanted to call us and explain, we could help you get a better idea. You may want have a good look at this page as you can stillo go to any body shop after if you want.

I suggest, don't try to do Any more your self, as even with the best tools in the world, you will not be successful with that damage. It is quite a tricky dent, as it goes all the way to the edge of the panel near the light.


It would be a bit like being armed with the best tennis racket in the world, then playing in a top match, only you can do damage with it.

I would say that you have a 70% chance of getting it 80% better or more.
