    repairing dent

    I've noticed a bloody dent on my bonnet, not the best things to happen in the morning. I don't quite how its got there but still none the less it has to be sorted!

    I will try and photo it later..but just wondering if those "dent pullers" are any good? or just use some filler.. and if so what filler would be good to get a nice finish as the halfords stuff I've always used seems to get a rough finish, or maybe its my crap sanding.

    Oh, and there's a slight scratch too.

    rather than wasting any money on some dent puller, i'd get some dent removal firm to look at it first.

    if the dent isnt too bad, you can use a rounded end of a fairly large screwdriver and from the inside carefully and slowly press it out. this only really tends to work for small ish dings the sort you get from someone wacking their door into yours, but you got to be carefull and do it slowly, dont try and do it at once or you could crease the paint

    I'd use a professionl myself to try and get rid of he dent, more often than now you won't even know where it was once they are finished

    Hopefully my latest door dent will be removed on Thursday
