    That's a very vague question, James. How bad a dent is it? What size? Is the paint all chipped or cracked? Some minor(even large) dents can be "pushed" back out from behind with a rubber mallet or regular hammer with a piece of wood in between. A small, less than 1/8 deep, dent can be filled with "bondo" smoothed and repainted. All the old paint needs to be ground away to provide a good foundation for the bondo. Good body work takes lots of practice, patience and a little talent. I'm just an amature, but can usually get decent results......eventually. If I can help anymore.....just ask again.[​IMG]
