that is nasty, you may get a good result with paintless dent removal of some kind, most cost is incurred with paint and labour, that may be difficult as its on the crease line.

Get a dent specialist to look at it. I had one on the curve of my wing just like that and the guy just popped it straight out, cant even seen where it was. Only cost £40.

mate, thats not as bad as you may think.

I've got a similar issue with my car, I suspect the bin men did it. luckly it only looks like a crease in the metal, so long as you've not cracked the paint, which it don't look like, you'll get most of that out with paintless dent removal I should think. It wont look 100% but you'll get a good amount of that out, a quick power polish over later and only you'll know its there.

As has been said as it is on a crease line it could be problematical. Might need a new skin and a spray job which will be fairly expensive. You will only find out by getting it looked at.

Well my dads mate can do it plus two other smaller dents ( one om the rear o/s arch and the ither on the front bumper for about 360 all in. Not too bad I think.

That is about what I thought a half skin and spray job would have been. Seems to be the way forward.

Well hes no cowboy so am pretty happy with that. Hes doing it cheaper for all the bits as its just one hit but if it was on its own I would be looking at about 230 anyway.
