I just recently got a small dent in my fender. Darn kids messing around by my car. It isnt creased, is there a way we can pop it out with a tool or what not?

Where would I go to buy the dent king or a suction cup ?

you might be able to get one at AZ. But im sure you could find one online just do a search at google or something. But, being able to get it out is a different story; where is the dent? You might want to try taking the fender skirt off and trying to pop it out from the inside of the fender rather than trying to pull it.

I will run out and take picture then edit this post

EDIT:
Sorry for the small pictures, if I dont post them small they show up HUGE. The dent doesnt look this bad. However somehow the pictures make it look like its worse then what it seems.






If you would like to see the pictures bigger let me know :)

I tried to pop out a dent in my trunk lid and it cracked the paint when I poped it back.
I think the general practice it to remove the damaged panel, pop it out and repaint the entire panel.

Or get a new fender from a junk yard.

You might get lucky when popping it out and not crack the paint but I wouldn’t count on it. At least not if you have the kind of luck I have.

Well the buying a new fender is out of the question and repainting it is out of the question. I think I will try to pop it out, just not sure how to go about it. I will prolly end up waiting until I go to the Meet and see what they think.

Just remove the fender and try to pound it out, just remember to take it slow better to do it right the first time. I would try and locate a body tool called a dolly and hammer. Just make sure yo take it slow you should be able to beat that out without ruining the paint.

Maybe if you heat the spot w/ a hair dryer or heat gun first the paint will be more flexible? I'd do it from the backside so you don’t scorch the paint.
