Ummmm.....yeah. I acciDENTally put a large dent in Purplie Challenger's right quarterpanel (on the bodyline - of course!) with my bare hand (!), as I was pushing it around the garage last month. (Note to self: don't park in such a tight spot ever again!) Tonight I took it over to a PDR guy, Kim Palmer's, and had him do a paintless dent repair. Due to the thin-ness of the metal, he got about 90% of the dent out, but stopped short because his dent removal tools were actually starting to stretch the metal past the point of flush, leaving a slight ripple. Enough for me to obsess on!
He stated that in 20+ years of doing dent repairs, this was the thinnest metal he'd ever worked on. In fact, he pushed in with one finger on the metal between the rear wheel and the bumper, and we could both see it deflect considerably!!
Which got me to thinking about ways to strengthen the absolutely flimsy thin metal on these cars!
I'm wondering if spraying Rhino Bed Liner into the space between the inner and outer quarterpanels, specifically on the outer sheetmetal would work towards adding a bit of strength to this metal?
Has anybody tried this?
