Body wizards
Hi everybody! So I inherited a door ding when I bought my WJ. It's on the front passenger door, right on the body crease where the GRAND CHEROKEE letters go. I've removed the inner door to find a support bar that goes along the back of the door skin, not allowing a tool back there to work the dent out. I know NOTHING about body work...what do you do in a situation like this? I've taken it to one shop for a quote and they want to replace the door. Way extreme for a little dent. Paint is ok. Overall size is maybe a nickel or a quarter.

You can BARELY see it in this pic if you zoom's directly below the door handle about a foot and a half.

Re: Body wizards
go talk to a paintless dent guy. they can do wonders even with the support bar in the way.

That's the problem...I've talked to 2 guys...had them both take a look and they both told me that bar is in the way. I'm going to try finding some more PDR guys, but 0-2 is pretty dismal.

There is a little space in-between the support bar and the door skin, but again, I don't know enough about it to know if that's all they need. I think if it's "hard" these lazy pricks don't want to bother since they charge by the dent and not by the difficulty level.

At the rate I'm going here, I might be better off driving up to Canada!

Thanks man...wish they had shops here in the states!

I actually bought a "Dent King" about 10 years ago and to this day I still swear by it. A person can easily make one if you can't buy them anymore. I still use mine to this day. I think it was 15 bucks. alot cheaper than a shop, for the same quality of work as a mobile dent guy.
