    I had one exactly the same in the passenger door of my MK3. All that got rid of it was the body shop i'm afraid with a guess a bit of filler

    Its too big for masterdent or similiar. As far as I know they will limit to a dent the size of a fist at most. That is a bodyshop job

    Yeah its either a filler, and spray over the top, but the colour won't match, so it may look worse than the dent.
    Or find a mint condition driver door in glacier white and just swap the doors over. Which would probably be the best option.
    Thanks for letting me know you got my delivery,
    my amp and sub are being wired in tomorrow and i am working on an MDF floor for my boot, got my HU working perfectly and its running some 5.25" Kenwood coaxials on the rear panels(they fit perfect), and i am gonna put some 6.5"(as i put my finger staight through the cone of the standard speakers trying to get the door card off,LOL) in the doors but i got to make an adaptor so they won't touch the window, have you got any tips to make them from MDF.
    Cheers mate.

    I used a autoleads adaptor and when mine still hit the window I spaced them out a further 10mm making a plate up out of fiberglass filler.

    Not good with that suff though or wood so i'm not the best to answer this. This is also why my ICE is still pretty much standard ops:

    Ok mate, i am gonna see what i can come up with some MDF and a jigsaw.
    I will probably end up having to buy the proper adaptor anyway.
    Did yours hit the window because the magnet was too deep, what speakers have you got in there.?

    Yep mine hit because of the magnet

    I put some Kenwood mid bass W1600 in the doors from my old cavalier, they would be about 8 years old now if I still had the car
