    Fixing curb damage DIY

    Does anyone have a DIY tutorial for fixing curb damage? I just bought a 11' WRX and the previous owner hit a curb. Or does anyone recommend a shop around Houston that can fix them? Thanks

    I had that happen on my 2013 WRX.
    The Subaru dealer had a guy who fixes alloy wheels.
    I paid $100 and it's perfect, you would never know it happened.

    DIY usually requires some welding and metal working. You usually have to fill the curb damage with a welder and material, then grind down to match the shape of the stocker...then repaint/touch up the whole thing.
