    Hi All,

    Advice please for a small dink I have on my rear wing, it's really small but it's bugging me!

    I've read that a mobile PDR would be the best option. Has anyone had a minor dent repaired in this way?

    I got quoted £75 to repair this small dink, anyone know whether this price is about par for the course?

    Cheers

    between £50 - £100 seems about right for dent or scratch by one of these guys,

    obviously if you have a couple done the price goes down,

    best way is to see some work they have already done sometimes they can be a bit hit and miss, a guy at work had a few dents and chips done by a bloke and it was awful

    My dent man charges £40 each. All my local dealers use him. He's done a few for me now over the years. He's coming Tuesday to do the Fiat

    Surprising just what they can get out.

    If you are talking about mobile scratch/dent repairers id be carefull i went to have this done and i was advised against it as they dont have any control over dust and temp if doing any spraying im not to sure on how they are repairing it but something to be mindfull of
