Angry NOOOOOO!!!

We had a seriously major storm the other night and a piece of plboard hit the rear left quater, put a very faint dent in it
Car was parked in one of the tank hangers-at my own risk!! Glad it wasn't outside there was a fair few branches flying about

Going to see my dealer as they have a body shop and get a price, am really hoping it can be sucked out

If I'm going to hell, I'll go on a Buell

Paintless dent repair

Try a local paintless dent repair expert. I have one near me that can perform magic. Usually 75-100 bucks. Get a good recommendation. Hope this can help you

These guys really do work some magic. A good friend of mine has an Uncle that does this full-time. He's got some out for me, even on body lines and creases.

A body shop may just want to bondo and repaint.

Honestly avoid a dealership body shop. More often than not you are better off going to an outside shop. Get some local referrals.

I speak from years of experience.
