Probably will cost you $150 if you go directly to the PDR guy if not a little less. I lost contact with the guy a shop I use to know uses. Just ask shops for their guys # and give him a call directly.

I have a dent like that from an accident and was told that it would be tough to fix via PDR and probably equally as expensive to replace that panel instead. It has two things going against it: 1) it's a crease type of dent rather than a rounded one; 2) it's directly on a hard body line. Yours is on a huge body panel though, so I'm guessing the panel would be much more expensive than mine was.

First I can tell you that couldn't have happened in a worse spot. Good news is, even though it is a tough fix, I think it is repairable. Any good reputable body shop with body guys who know what they are doing can work that out, I would expect it to cost anywhere from $100-$250.

A good friend of mine has a body shop in Lockport, IL. He's the only person I trust to do body work on any of my cars. The shop is Gombosi Auto, ask for Joe or Matt. (815) 838-6844. Bring it over and have them take a look, he will give you a quote, and at least some honest insight as to what it is really going to take to make it look right.

Matt has been a good friend of mine for years, you can tell him Tony referred you. Good luck.

Hi guys,
