    I just got some body damage on the drivers door. Nothing too bad, just a pushed in body panel. Does anyone have any tips to popping it out? I don't even know if that's possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I can vouch for the plunger trick too[​IMG]!!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, if the dent involves the body line(where the angle changes two thirds up the door), you'll never fully be able to remove the ripple that will be left behind................

    Don't worry about it just consider it as "Battle Damage".

    Do it as soon as possible. The metal will remember it's old shape if done quick enough, but if left too long it might not go back

    <font color=blue>Dents are cool! If you really want it away take the inner door panel off and hit it out from inside, or drill a small hole and use a slide hammer</font color=blue>

    Got the exact same dent...skinny trails..wide truck. One trick of Grim Reaper's is to pull the inner door panel off and stuff a deflated basketball in the door and then slowly inflate it. After getting about a million dings and dents, I blew 4 bucks on a suction cup dent puller.
