Nice repair.

It looks like the cover had a textured finish (i.e. plain plastic with a 'grooved' surface).

Another way to work around this would be to sand it using 600-800 wet & dry, but the method you've used will achieve a similar result after a few coats of primer have been applied & sanded down to fill these grooves.

Were you able to do anything with the dent whilst you had the door card off?


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
