It may hinder your chances of winning but you can still just enter, show of your mods, and have a great time with all the other enthusiasts!

Repair the dent. You won't stand a chance at all.

I would say you probably won't win with a dent but that doesn't stop you from having fun. How big of a dent and where is it located?

And BTW i love the ZL1 Fascia on your car. Cant even tell it was a LS any more

I agree. I would get the dent repaired or your chances of winning a show are slim. Appearance is a huge factor, ya know?!? Get it fixed and begin modding (again) soon after!

if a lady hit you why didn't her insurance fix it? Its obviously her fault if she rear ended you at a stop sign

Well what happened was we exchanged insurances and I never followed up in fear that my rates might go up, but it was a dumb assumption and now I'm stuck.

Ya, even the smallest accidents (no damage slight damage) you should involve the police. So, its documented.

and, your insurance would NOT go up from her hitting you.

Car shows are based on appearance. All the mods won't mean crap if you have dents, especially a "hole" in the rear bumper. But, half the fun of car shows is just being able to show your stuff off. If you wanted to win trophy's, then you should have left it stock. Car shows that I've attended usually have two classes, stock and modified, and appearance plays a major part in judging both classes.

I got door dinged while in a carshow! Still took first in my class

Don't worry about modding further without repairing the dent. If you try to make the car look good, but have dents..it just soils the look of the car. Get 'er fixed!

Yes if it is any kind of decent car show it should decrease your chances. Fix the dent then try again.

If it's a legit car show, the dent will hurt you.
If it's a loud sound system, stupid paint, ugly wheels, tall spoiler, and enough lights to give you a seizure kind of car show, the dent will not matter.

Not to be rude but if you seriously want to show your car, you need to learn where its safe to park or drive obviously. You cant show a car that looks like a daily driver. Im confused how you can get so many dents in a short amount of time. I owned a Jeep for 11 yrs and nvr had 1 dent or scratch

My SS is an award winning car and also my daily driver. It can be done.

It wasn't damaged in parking a lady hit me at a stop sign and the small dents someone did intentionally because there nothing you can do with a door.
