Question gauging interest in dent removal (and stuff)

There is some discussion of trying to get a dent repair person to come to Fest this year, as was done in 2009. Being that it is a much smaller, more isolated area, I'm not sure if this will happen, but I'd like to see how much interest there is in that service.

I know my beloved beetle is showing its years of parking in the lots of suburban hell and could use a little help.

If anyone else is interested in this possibility, please let us know here. I do not have any information on this, just testing the waters as it were.

Although it may be too close to the Fest 2015 to arrange much else, if there are other services/vendors/things you'd like to see at Fest (this one or in general), here would be a good place to let that be known. If it's not something we can make happen this year, we'll hold onto it for another year. Thanks.

I just had all of the dents pulled out of the Touareg. Hopefully I don't get anymore between now and Fest!

Having my car repainted after the fest, so no interest on my part.

Now, if I was interested, it would be important to know who is doing it, how much and some references to his work. More likely I would want to see his work before I had him/her work on my car.

To me, it doesn't really make sense to travel 3000 miles to a resort location in Maine for dent removal. For example:

Here at home, Anita had her month old Camry driver door dinged in 3 different spots. All the dings were removed by a local paintless repair guy - he really did a great job. I would use this fellow on my car if needed - because I saw his work - before and after.

Default How big a dent can 'paintless' handle?

I ve got a doughnut(donut) sized dent in the trunk.

Can Paintless fix that?

It has not bothered the trunk any, and given its age (2001) and waiting on a replacement set of front fenders....

The Sound Absorbing foam in the Front fender area, finally gave out this July.

Dont know if paintless would cover a foot ball (US) sized hole in fender.

As long as the paint isn't damaged these guys can do amazing stuff.

4 more days left to vote on whether or not you want dent removal services at Fest... if there isn't significant interest, it'll be too far for the dent guy to come.
