Aaargh door dent in my quarter panel! Ideas on how to fix?
Man I hate this! I had my dent guy come out and take a look at this dent and his suggestion was to remove the rear left wheel pull the liner and drill a hole into the wheel house so he could 'bump' it out. Hold on back up.....'DRILL A HOLE' in my Furious Fuchsia SRT8 6 speed Challenger, what I won't even see it? Ya, but I'll know it's there. What are you on crack?
Stupid ignorant people with car doors. I'm glad I didn't see it happen as I probably would of had a meltdown and probably come unhinged followed the people home figured out where they lived went back later with the wifes 4x4 F150 with the grille guard and caved in their door and pushed their beater across the lawn into their house, especially if I had of known that my Challenger would have to be drilled, lol. Okay I won't have done that but hey, if your on this forum, you know what I'm talking about. I gotta find a paper bag to breath in!
Anybody had this dent happen in this area? Rather than drill Lola, I was thinking about pulling the rear seat and inner quarter trim, but we have a side curtain airbag. Not a big deal, but if I do any damage ie: break a clip etc., I'm looking at replacing it and that stuff can be pretty pricey. But I'd hate to pull all that stuff and have no access either.
I had suggested pulling the sub and going at it from the trunk but my dent guy says the fuel filler is in the way. My buddy installed a flip top gas cap on his SE and he says that there is a lot of room if you pull the cap cover and maybe the dent guy could get at it from that way. The dent guy suggested gluing something to the dent but he says that he has marginal sucess doing that and he couldn't gaurantee it would go away.
Can you imagine the wife, "Where did you go last night? And why is my truck covered in mud and grass and what the hell did you do too my front end?" Lol.
The cars a 2010 (obviously) and it just turned 3250 miles on the clock. Sigh.....
