well i had a old customer call me up the other day and said he needed a dent removing.so i went over today and seen this lol. its crazy how some people explain things over the phone .ie small dent lol.
anyway he says hes been quoted £1170 from bmw to repair and he just wanted "it to look better" i never like it when they say that due to im a perfectionist with my work. he said please have a go ill pay for your time.so i couldnt say no to that.
so i set out to pushing most of it out and filling/trimming the high/low parts blah blah (harder than it looks and didnt go as easy as i hoped) blah blah and it ended up perfect. very happy and so was i.

That's a top job right there - very impressive!!

QUOTE(Russeh @ 9 Jan 2010, 06:26 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>thats a fantastic job, just need someone like you closer to wakefield lol

Though it isn't 'close' as such as I live nearer West Bretton way, I recently took a Corsa to D&S Motors in Mapplewell who specialise in body repair. Some yobs pushed my motorbike off its kickstand and into the side of a friends car, which pushed a huge 'canyon' like scar into the panel right down just behind the door seam and where the side impact bar is. It looked horrible and I was surprised the handlebar hadn't fully gone through as they'd obviously kicked the bike to get it to rag down the side of the car....
Anyway, £150 and two days later I honestly could not see where the original mark had been and I still can't even now. Couple of mature guys, really nice down to earth chaps and they did a fantastic job - I would recommend them to anyone - though an EO ST might be a bit more difficult to match!!
