    what are my options? is there anything i can put over it? liiike a black vinyl or somthing? i took my car to a party recently and an asshole led ontop of it, im trying to make him pay but its like getting blood from a stone. ive been quoted £400-£500 to sand, filler and respray it. and im not gonna lie to you it annoys the hell out of me, ive tried pulling it with a dent suction pad but that didnt work so well.

    Can you take some pics? May be able to do PDR by dismantling the lining and using special tools.

    Do you have fully comp insurance?... if so tell them and they can pursue the idiot that damaged it. Maybe another option if he wont pay up tell him you have contacted the police and its criminal damage and he either pays up or you will get them to follow it up. just a few idea's, i can understand how it can wind you up, i had my bonnet keyed in Yarmouth and it really got to me!

    I dont particularly want to get legal issues involved, he has asked if we could stay out of that and wants to meet up after glastonbury. its just alot of hassle getting other people involved. it winds you up when youve just cleaned the car and its looking perfect except for some dents that you know arnt your fault!

    Il try and get some pictures now, my mother has taken the camera to glastonbury but i think i have another one, give me 20 mins to charge it.

    just went out, but the camera isnt working, and theyre quite hard to make out in the day with a camera, il wait till it gets a little darker and il try the camera again.

    Looks like it will be worth getting the paintless dent removal guy out for a quote
