Dent Removal Question from Nick Holt

Submitted on 27/06/2011

Hi I'm based in East London in the Royal Docks area. The dent in my car door (pictures attached) was sustained while parked and caused I assume by a careless driver catching my door as they pulled into the adjacent parking space. Please advise the best course of action to repair it. Thanks Nick Model: BMW 3-Series


If you take a close look at what look like scratches, to see if you think they are surface. If they are, then I would suggest you may want to call us and bring it in under what we call a Piggy back booking. We could try it , then if we areat sucsessful you could drive staight to Kraftwork for a quote with the intention of leaving it there and possibly gwetting a train home. If it obvious that the paint is scratched right through, then you will need what we call a Midi Repair.  Have a read of this page and then go through the link to Kraftworks website.The door would need to be repaired, then resprayed, then the front wing will need to be resprayed. Have a look at our Smart repair v bodyshop repair video which may save you a Lot of heart ache.  

Good Luck
