Dent Tech from Lexington will be attending TDIFest 2011 on Saturday, with the possibility of returning on Sunday if there is enough interest. Nice folks, good work.

From what I understand, they charge by panels. For example, you have several dents in your driver's door. They will charge one price to remove all those dents. If you have a dent in the passenger door, there will be an additional charge for that panel. There will be a max charge for multi-panel jobs. Price will be discussed and agreed upon before work will commence.

If I understand correctly, $50 for first panel. $20 or $25 for each additional panel. This is in line with what I've paid at IMPEX and the DC Fest.

They will have a popup tent to work under, and a signup sheet at their work area.

Thanks, Bruce

have had over 50 dinples in my car since 2006 and a new one 2ft impression in hood from a camper dropping his snow load from his roof. Always thought the dimples made it faster like a golf ball. not the noticeable might have it looked at depending on price - just went through 2 cam installs see what happens with that first.

Anyone able to do touch-up with a small airbrus? I have a few stone chips above the windshield area I'd like to keep from rusting.

Thanks,

I'm also interested. If I can get my brother-in-law to register and come along, there might be one more. He bought a 2009 Jetta two days ago that came with a small ding on the deck lid.

... and all that painting that you would need to do! I like the idea of simply bending the metal back into position! :D

None at this time
Had one like that taken out on a fender once, but he may need to get to the back side of it, don't know if there is access down there.

I have the exact same dent. It's one of the three I want removed and I was curious whether they could get to it.

Two dents removed, the one in the rocker panel next. Anyone know a good rocker panel straighter outter? The two dents I had are history. Too bad I didn't make them. So happy to have them gone!
