Default Quarter panel dent


Hello everyone. I was driving after a nasty thunderstorm last night in some high winds today and some debris slammed into my quarter panel and left this little ding right above my wheel. Has anyone had a similar dent and is this something pdr can fix? Also, what kind of price tag am I looking at to get this corrected. Thank you

A good PDR tech can fix that no problem, $150-300.

Thank you! Was able to pop it out with pdr. Ended up being $150 and is almost spotless. Very impressed.

Never say never! That looked to be along a crease, yet seems to be resolved. I had one in the lower front corner of a door, an area that is not supposed to be fixable via PDR, yet they did it.

Excellent!

Hi,
You can use dry ice to fix the dent on the quarter panel.

Good. Glad it worked. Now that the dent's gone, take some of this and see if it will take out those scuff-marks in the paint just above the wheel. They will rub out if they aren't too deep into the clearcoat. Make sure you use the Scatch-Out scratch-remover and not the rubbing compound, which comes in the same yellow bottle.

Some but not that dent, too sharp.
