More from the People are idiots file (1/4 panel dent/2 inch deep scratch)

So I go grocery shopping at lunch and come out to find this....a half dollar sized dent along the wheel well on the rear 1/4 panel area and a 2 inch deep scratch from i guess whatever car did that.....my question to all of you is, what is the cheapest way to get this fixed as I am not interested in a respray of the whole side of the car for this 2 inch scratch...would PDR be able to take care of the dent itself (obviously they couldn't fix the deep scratch)....

yuck, sorry.

a body shop may be able to just spot it in, since the scratches aren't too big...

i just can't believe how careless people can be.
The very first night I bought my E36 M3 back in 1997, someone used a shopping basket to leave a 4" scratch. Some people are pathetic.

Serious question, they have grocery stores in west Antarctica (your location)?

I had a similar damage done to my truck's tailgate from being damaged by a trailer hitch. It cost be about $600.00 for a reputable shop to fill it in and paint. I don't think a pdr + wet sand will get the results you're looking for. Gl
