    Dimple on rear quarter

    I was driving my car yesterday and a pick-up truck going the opposite way drove off the road and threw up some gravel and a piece hit the rear quarter of the driver side. It did not chip the paint but did but about a 1 mm deep dimple in the hip of the rear drivers side about 10 inches back for the door seam and in plain view when I am driving and look out my outside rear view mirror when the light is at the right angle.

    In looking at a possible solution it appears impossible to repair it from the inside out due to access problems so it must be removed from the outside.

    Does anyone know if this is possible? I have a call in to my dealership but have not heard back due to the weekend. I have seen some methods to remove small dents and dings but am not sure if you need to access from the inside out. I know that Dent Busters removes small dents but they work from the inside out.

    Any help would be appreciated. The dimple is literally just a mm or less but is enough to be noticeable and everytime I look out my outside mirror I can see if when the light is right!!!!

    Some nasty moron put a little door dent / dimple in my 4s hip - luckily, a quick trip to dent master and they 'from the inside out' fixed the problem. Absolutely 100% undetectable.

    Not sure about what you define as a dimple - can you post a pic so that we can see what the damage is? If it's like mine - then it's completely fixable.

    Re: Dimple on rear quarter

    I doubt that I could capture it on a pic. It truly is a very slight dimple less than a 1 mm in depth and very hard to see unless the light captures it at the right angle. I don't how they fixed yours from the inside out since there is a protective metal liner between the inside of wheel well and outside metal skin of the car.

    I am hopeful that it can be fixed and will post the resolution once I have some more information that is worth posting.
