wo man, that price sounds good, where did you do that? kwit fit or mini dealer? my cooper s passenger side also have a little dent....really bugging me, tell me plz where did you do that..I thought it should be very expensive, so till now haven't try to fix...
AS a matter of interest, do the dents have to be removed by using a needle type machine on the inside of the panel, or can you pull out minor dents from the outside? I'd imagine that the needle machine would leave marks on the paint on the inside of the panel.

Hey Antipop, I'm the dent guy who achieved the '90%' repair.
Firstly, I find it amusing you are able to comment on a repair you have not seen.
And secondly on first inspection of the damaged area I was able to explain the process and possible limitations on this specific repair to the owner of the car due to its location near the top of the door and running across a particularly difficult area of door bracing.
After fully explaining and gaining agreement to proceed with the repair I removed most of the dent in the usual way before removing the door card to gain access to complete the job.
As expected the remainder of the dent was directly in front of the section of bracing that actually touches the door skin, even using 'ultra thin' tools complete access was impossible hence the remaining '10%'
Using the dent puller was considered, however there were signs that at some point the door had been painted and no matter how good pullers claim to be they are no substitute for traditional methods.
so thanks for the 'rant' but if you are a true seasoned pdr pro then you know that our eyes are more critical than others and there can sometimes be that dent that just plays hard to get.
