Me three

I've got a dent in my back fender that would be a perfect cantidate. I got a dent a while ago (wife was driving: I said "Stop" she said "Why?" car said "Bang") but I ended being able to pound it out myself. I looked around at the time and couldn't fine anybody.

I used a guy here locally in Walnut, CA.

He owned his own business, and came to my house.

He arrived with what I call a "black bag of torture instruments". Metal rods of all different sizes and lengths.

He used these to push out the dents from the inside out. It took him at least two hours, maybe three, to get out all the dents in my old '93 300E 3.2.

I watched him for about 30 minutes, and as he is pushing and massaging the dents, it looks like nothing is happening. He works and works and works, using different metal rods, and magically, they end up going away.

I learned that it is an art this learned over time. Experience is everything.

I'd find a local guy who has been doing it for many years.

If you'd like, I can try and dig up his name.

Paul,

Yes, if not too much trouble to find. Would come in handy.

Thanks,
