Anybody else get a dent/door ding over their driver side rear wheel well??

I have one

There is no paint damage whatsoever which is nice but there's clearly a small dent.

I'm just wondering if there will be an easy way for a PDR guy to get to that spot? It's just about in the center of the wheel well.

Just thinking about it makes me mad. Try to take care of the car but it just can't happen


UPDATE:

PDR guy fixed the spot and I can't even really tell it was ever there now. It might be about 98% fixed. Charged me $40 and I gave him $55. He took his time and really tried to get it all. Overall I'm super happy with it

I routinely park faw away form others, but in one year I have collected two on the passenger side rear wheel well, and one tiny on on the door crease on the passenger side. My car is black, so they show up pretty easy. Any experience on price to pull them out?

I had one in the same spot (after 80 bloody miles) It is double skinned in that area - the guy drilled a hole inside wheel well right over the ding then pushed it out out - brilliant job -- charged me $80..that was 2 1/2 years ago - not ding since!! (tempting fate i know)

Shoot! I'll pay $80 easy for someone to get this little ding out! Hope I can find a good guy around here.

Thankfully mine didn't come with those rear quarter dimples. On dark colors they would show more.

Yep, consider yourself lucky you don't have any. They are definitely an eye sore...even if they are small.

Dang. You pay a dent doctor to pull 'em out, and you get new ones for free! Maybe I need some rubber fender guards to hang out when I park!

Wish you had a photo of the dent before it got fixed, I have one but it's from the factory and all Camaro's I've seen have this ripple/ by left rear tire well Top/ and towards the rear.

Yeah I didn't get any pics. I'm not sure if I know exactly what you're talking about....at least I haven't noticed that. Mine was clearly a ding where it shouldn't have been. Probably a lot less subtle than what you're seeing....even though there was no paint missing. All gone now though!!!!

Ripple?

I've seen that mentioned on some posts. My car doesn't have any ripple marks on the upper fenders, and being black - it would really show up! My dings were on the flat part of the wheel well - right where a door would meet it from a clumsy or inconsiderate

I have a slight ripple on both rear wheel arches, near the back.

My cousin Paul's 2SS has the same ripples.

Meh. I'm over it
