can you get a photo ?
as long as the dent removel guy can get to it i dont see why not and as long as the dent isnt sharp .has it cracked the paint ?
320 for just the bonnet is a bit much you say its dead centre which means theres no need to flick onto the wing s.do you have any m8,s in the car trade ?
as in get it at trade price ?
