Subject: <Paintless Dent Removal>

Here's my vote for paintless dent removal. I was first exposed to this technique when I was asking my mechanic which body shop to use to have some door dings "pulled, filled, and repainted". By coincidence, the Dent Master, was plying his craft on a 750iL in the shop. I was invited to watch the procedure and simply was blown away by what I witnessed. Huge, ugly door dents disappeared without a trace. It was one of those experiences when all you can say is things like "wow, that's amazing", or "If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it possible!" The procedure involves using special tools to essentially push the metal back into shape from behind the dent. Not everyone has equal skill in using the tools. So find out who's good and go by reputation.

Needless to say, watching made me a believer, and since that time about six years ago, I have had the Dent Master remove several dents from my cars. The cost will depend on the location and severity of the dents. Some dents are hard to reach because of interference with the window mechanical inside the doors, but so far, all of mine have been accessible. But on average, I pay around $60 or so to get both sides de-door-dinged. I meet my guy at various dealer locations, because he's fixing all of their cars, too. The Dent Master is the best in Georgia, and he would probably win a national "dent-off" if there were such a thing.

So by all means, give paintless dent removal a try. You'll be amazed with the results.
