Default PDR : Paintless Dent Removal - great result!

I was absolutely gutted last week when I discovered a dent on the top of my bonnet. It looked like something had been either dropped or thrown onto it.

Although the wife thought it was hardly worth my absolutely foul language (sorry dear wife and neighbours..... ) every time I looked at the car my eye went straight to the dent.

It looked worse in real life than it does in the first picture below I can tell ya....

As the paint wasn't broken I researched on PDR and found Jake Quintin at www.1sttrackdents.co.uk in St Albans. His web site shows him in action on a few cars.

It was as good chatting with him as watching him work his magic this morning and I'd recommend him to anyone. Absolutely brilliant job.

Trouble is, we then walk round your car and spot the other minor car park dinks etc ..... but pocket money only goes so far, eh?

Happy Roving all

John

Great result, I made an appointment with another guy here in Holland to remove dents on the bonnet due to people who could not close it the way it should have been. I will hope for great results and post them!

Good luck .... I hope you are as happy as I am.

As long as the paint isn't cracked you should be lucky ... albeit a bit poorer!

handsome colour & car!
I love my Atlantic blue pearlescent as well with its blue & green metallic glints, but it's a pita job to keep it clean like other darker colours: every tiniest hint of mud, filth or grease, even dust cannot escape the eye mainly in sunny & shiny weather! Nevertheless mind that the car is polished & waxed.
Tomorrow my pride & joy will be involved in a rally with other British cars (older I bet, with some roadsters), beginning the journey with a nice breakfast cum 'croissants' in a C17 castle...
Yes that summer heat was rather painful. Fortunately our large traditional house is easily able to keep the coolness. But touring in France - particularly in the Alps visiting our younger son - was appalling because the inside of our B&B was dirty hot (my son's house is to become guest friendly but at the moment under renovation & extension!). But we resisted thanks to our 75 aircon!
