My Subaru dealer helped me out with a dent problem.... :? they use a local dent specialist.. may be worth ringing them?

Hope this helps

Yea know what you mean.... :roll: Depending on the location of the dent, the bill should be around 50-80 all in including vat. Just ask them for the phone number of thier dent guy and get a quote... :wink:

believe it or not, I was thinking about doing this, but concerned about pulling it out too far!

I will give it a try

paul ..use a plunger type with the pump action on the end....like a bike pump and you can pull it out without putting preasure on it to get a seal....hope this makes sense.
