    First ding after a week! (Only me)

    So I put a nice dent in the driver rear door after just a week of having the car. Apparently I can't enter a car like a normal person I kneed the door getting in.... I'm 6"3 btw. So after going nuts for a few hours I found a guy local who does PDR (paintless dent removal.) two days later he showed up to my house and did his thing. He told me straight up he'd get 95% of it out. 150 bucks later I'm quite impressed, even though my neurotic self still looks at that area. Here are some pics before and after the order might messed UP of the pics. Threw in pic of pass. Side for ref. Tell me what you think...[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]112810Click image for larger version.

    yeah it was. the guy told me it wasnt going to be completely fixed, only thing youll notice and you have to really be looking for it is some distortion of the paint from the metal being stretched out. He said scoobys' are a pain to work on cause of how thin the sheet metal is on our cars. still annoys me but its near perfect and beats almost spending 1000 bucks for "perfection". down the road i may just get it redone when i have the money, but it will suffice for now.
