Had a large ding in the fender of my 4th Gen right in front of the rear wheel... about the only metal on the whole side of the car and some kid in a minivan found it.

Paintless took it out for about $75 and I could not see any trace of it after... and this was on a black car.

Highly recommended.

Just be sure to see a person with a good reputation. Bad workmanship can be in any profession.

Question about PDR, will I still be able to have the dent fixed if its been there a while? I have one thats been there for almost 8 months and the other about 6 months now, never even heard of PDR until a little while after they happened(i must be living under a rock, I know) and don't even know of any around me.

If you're worried, ask a reputable body shop who they use for this type of "injury." I had one removed over the front driver's side tire...right on the crease. Can't even tell and I have IOM paint. My guy said as long as it wasn't down to the metal and rusted it would work.

Tried taking pics the day I found them to send to the DentRepairCompany before they came out. They didn't show up.:( Trust me they are there on the bodyline which you can't see as well. Sometimes a good wax job doesn't help.

I'm one of those dent guys, I have my own PDR business. Love it! Removed 4 dents in mine (previous owner didn't mention to tell me about them after an 8 hour drive one way) All were on the body lines right on both doors. Got them out within a matter of minutes.

I found a place locally just by Googling for about 30 minutes and looking at different places websites. The guys I decided upon did mostly high end cars and would do it while you wait. They also stressed the fact that if you didn't go with them, you need to insist on a place that does NOT drill to get to the dent. Apparently that can do all kinds of crazy crap to your car and cause rust and possible airbag damage and things like that. These guys did an amazing job and fixed my door dent in about 40 minutes. Charged me $60 and I was in and out before my work shift for the day.

Where in Indiana?

Looked up Anderson. If you are ever in the NW area send me a PM. I have a couple to fix. One on the hood and a couple on the cab above the rear seat. Hail dents from 3 years ago, only had the car 6 weeks. Swing by and make a couple $
