Dent Removal

Does anyone know of a place in huntsville that does a solid job at dent removal, that wont charge me them same amount of replacing a whole door?

a few weeks ago i went into a walmart, came out and saw that someone apparently hit my driver side door with their door and put a little dent in it. Everyone tells me its not that bad but i cant help but to look at it in shame to make it worse everytime I get it washed, to me, it gets more apparent.

I could try to do one of those DIY jobs but I just like things done right the first time.

Ahh yes, door dings. It's why I park on the moon and walk. And still someone parks next to me and gives a love tap. Makes me want to pull out a sledgehammer and cave their door in each time I see it.

As far as repair, I don't know of anyone off the top of my head.

Joe Hudson pulled a dent from my S-10 hood and it was fairly cheap.

There's a guy at the honda dealership that's awesome. I think his name is Ricardo? He may have moved since it's been a few years since i had him do anything but he's freaking awesome.

Ricardo is still there from what I know, and he's FANTASTIC with body work. He and his wife both have show cars that have won multiple awards from events all over the southeast. There's tons of pictures of them here in the HCS galleries somewhere...

He works at Jerry Damson right off Bob Wallace. The body shop is known as Norm's, but I've bumped into him behind the dealership when getting parts from the parts dept, so he's sometimes in that area as well.

Beware Joe Hudson!! I had a very bad experience with them on my Dodge Ram, but it was more than a dent, it was almost $6000

Jon at Dent Systems on Pratt is FANTASTIC. He did some work on my VR-4 and did a great job. His rates were reasonable and his turn around time was very quick. I'd highly recommend him to anybody.

Joe Hudsons specialize in general collision repair for insurance companies, so the quality can be less than what we expect as enthusiasts.

You could try the compressed air/hair dryer method.

I was told about this. I think a buddy of mine tried it but couldn't get it to work for him.

Very neat! I wonder if this is one of the techniques that pros use?
