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

With time, you could probably get the dent out but the door will end up rippled and distorted.
That will annoy you every time you look at the car and with being black, it stands out like a sore thumb.

Might be worth approaching a small side street bodyshop and ask if they have a source for used panels and whether they can find a door and fit it.
And a price of course..

Find you own door and fit yourself or find a friend to do it and you can save more money.
Look on ebay for used door prices.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
