    Red face oh dear had a small accident

    Well was driving up the high street, and saw shit load of traffic so turned off into a small alley, where this old woman stood there and looked at me. i felt bad so i tried to give her more room.......... but unfortunertly i gave her too much room and hit a metal balard on the left side
    heres the damage:




    Was going to get it professional fixed..... til the dude quoted me 6-700 quid!
    didn't do it obviously, tried my best to get it fixed all i need to do now is get the dents out



    what does everyone reckon?

    Not good mate, i did the same but with the wall outside my house on the rear arch.
    I can recommend you a mobile dent man if you want? Has done plenty of work for my brother, and he's in Bristol.

    well done with the polish up but as said, it may be tricky getting the dents out.
