Re: Dent/Damage to Passenger Door - Clio DCI (3 dr)

Of interest, why won't insurance cover it?

If body shop guys are suggesting skin I'd believe them, they do (usually) know what they are talking about and have a fair idea of how metal moves.

If they are talking skin so a colour match spray would be needed....similar with a second hand door unless you can match colour.

Cheapest would be second hand of right colour and if useful with spanners, can swap yourself (get a mate to help support door)

If car is an older one, pull what can come out and filler.... not ideal but cost effective.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
