So yesterday I drove to Walmart to pick up some things and about 30 minutes later i come out to notice that theres 2 somewhat minor (minor but noticable) dents in my right door. Its not the kind of dent thats circular but the one thats like a line. Almost like someone scratched it but instead of scratching, it just left a dent. I dont really know how it happened mabey from a shopping cart or something. I should of just taken the time and parked AWAY from everyone...

Can anyone tell me if theres anyway I can get a dent like that out myself?

Thanks a lot!

There are companys out there they do paintless dent repair . My brother had hail damage on his Mustang Gt . Went to these guys and I will say "I was impressed " Couldn't see a thing . They did a hell of a job . You don't have the issues with having it in the body shop for weeks . Rental cars etc... Might want to check around and see if anybody in your area is doing it and see some of their work .

I did forget to tell ya . My wife drove my 300M to Wally world several years ago . She parked , went in , did her shopping . When she came out she got in the car and went to back out . Noticed the car didn't want to move . Gave it some gas and all of a sudden it broke loose with a loud noise . She stopped and got out . She ripped and pulled off part of the front bumper cover . What had happened when she pulled up to the individual parking curb , she didn't see that the rebar that they use to anchor the curb in place was sticking up about 4" . When she went and backed up , and with the 300M sitting so low to the ground , the rebar caught on the inner lip of the bumper cover and destroyed it . Went inside and saw the store manager . He took pics and agreeded it was their fault . Walmarts insurance company contacted me and made good on the repairs . Guess I got lucky because it was quite obvious what had happened . Went back the following day to take pics and the rebar was already taken care of .

Definitely use your paintless dent repair person. They do great work and it's a lot cheaper than the body shops.

$150 - $200 per panel is the customary charge.

blue you did get lucky lol, as a former assistant manager with wal mart, i can tell you they have a policy that states wal mart is not liable for anything that happens in the parking lot. i mean unless its somethin like a cart pusher runs into your car with a line of carts. almost every car or truck ive owned has had a runin with some carts in the wal mart parking lot. there really is no where safe in the lot you can park :smiledown:

That sucks about the dent! Hope you can find a place that'll do the paintless repair. Rain or shine I park well out of the way after I had my truck keyed at a local mall. The ONE time I saw a stall that was absolutely prime with enough space on either side to park the ram, I pull in, and come out an hour later with a gouge from the front wheel well to the middle of the back door... I was choked... getting it fixed in a week though :smileup:
