    Folks

    I have owned my car for 18 months - pretty pleased all in

    I have a small dent on the grill which means the kidney grills are a little loose because they don't "snap" together.

    I rang and emailed a dent doctor asking whether he could treat never heard back

    Does this mean that the dent is awkward and can only be removed at a body shop?

    This is where you come in -I'd value your view







    Thanks

    Try another "Dent Master" type person, looks like it's repairable to me... You would be amazed what they can do

    Can you not get to the back of the dent yourself. Looks like it'll pop out.

    It's fairly solid metal there. If it was a larger sheet then might work. I try another dent remover
