Batmaro got his first dent, any suggestions for paintless repair in L.A.

Batmaro now sports a dent on top of the right front fender by the engine compartment. The bad news, it is right on the crease going down the top of the fender. If it was on a flat spot, I don't think it would be an issue but I am not sure if a paintless dent removal will work on a crease. Can this be done effectively with paintless dent removal? Does anyone have any suggestions on a shop in the south Los Angeles area to get an estimate/repair for this? Hated to see the dent, 2 scuffs, 1 scratch and 1 chip but it is what it is.

i got my first door ding with only 75 miles on the car right on the crease in the middle of the door. Had a company called dent wizard come out to my home and within about 15 minutes and $70.00 later you would never know there was ever a ding. don't know if you have any dent wizards out there but my tech was great.

Thanks for the tip. I did a search and found a company called Dent Wizard about 4 miles from my house. I don't know if they're a national company or not but I'll check it out. At least I have hope that a crease can be fixed.

If they are good and a Camaro5 member, I would consider the drive to give them business.

I do not think that they are a C5 member but they color matched my GFX and installed them in 2 days.

Dents Out Plus just left the house and Rich did an excellent job. He even took care of a couple of dimples that have been in the car for a while but they were so small I just didn't think it was worth it to call in someone for them. The dent in the crease is barely discernible. If you didn't know where to look, you would never notice it. Much better than I expected.

Awesome... I'll have to keep them in mind... the guy I had used for years closed down when the economy went crappy and I've been thru about a half dozen different places (for customer cars) since and have had some really bad experiences.

Good to know theres a good place to refer to.
