Thanks Batman0837! - Dent removal expert

Saturday, after things were winding down, I did a "walk around" checking for dings, dents, scratches, etc. Sure enough, I found smudges on my front passenger side wheel, which led me to find a dent that came from the inside, out of my fender. Something caught the inner lip of the fender and pulled it out. It didn't look real bad, but the car wasn't perfect anymore...I was upset. I think it may have happened when I ran the autocross track, hitting a cone or something. I didn't hear anything, but it would explain the scuff marks on the wheel. Anyway, I knew I saw that there was a dent specialist thinking of being at the fest, so I found his thread. He did 2 things I liked in his thread; 1. Made it very easy to find him by leaving his cell number in bold letters. 2. Posted before and after photos of his work...sorry I didn't take any photos of his work to my car. So, I got a hold of Batman. He met me the next morning. He said it was an "odd-ball" dent, but would do the best he could. His best, got it completely out. You can not tell anything ever happened there. That ranks right up there with the best time I had at C5Fest.

This is the thread I used to find him. It contains contact info and before and after photos of his work.

I'm sure he had several happy customers throughout the weekend. He said he had done about 20 cars by the time I called him. As soon as he was done with my car, he was working on his next car.

Thanks Batman!

I appreciate you talking up my repair. No one is happier than me when I make a successful repair and yours ranked right up there with the "weird" ones because that type of dent is so unusual. But when my customers are happy, I'm happy!! When I can't help someone I get pissed because that person may not consider PDR the next time...I'm glad that I helped finish your C5Fest visit on a positive note!! See you next year, hopefully w/o dents but if you have any I'll give them my best shot!!

He was one of the hardest working guys at the Camaro5Fest! Everytime I saw him, he was fixing dents. He does an awesome job and is a great guy.

I'm sure you'll be hard at work next year too! Probably twice as many camaros with twice as many dents!

The batman took out 4 dents on my IOM. 2 of them I knew about and thats why I called him, the other 2 he found for me. He did an awesome job! If you need PDR service, Chris is the one to call. Thanks Bud, see you next year.

Chris is the only person I've seen examine my car doors more thoroughly than myself, and I had to smirk at the look of disappointment on his face when he saw how flawless they were.

I had a small ding but in the wrong place on the body were Chris had to be very patience in doing it . He took almost 45 min but he succeeded. It would of taken him 5 min but as he said he didn't want to drill a hole to get at it.. I'm pleased with his work and would recommend him to everyone...Thanks again Chris..
