    Default Dent Doctor Reccomedations.

    I recently purchased a car in exceptional condition apart from a few external parking dents.
    There's any number of 'experts' who claim they can correct the problems of careless drivers who open doors oblivious to the damage they inflict on the cars parked next to them.

    I've seen both ends of the results. Some really impressive although I've lost contact with those owners, and others with more hits than Elvis in the effort to fix. If that's the only alternative, I'll leave well alone and live with the dents.
    I'm in Melb and would like to hear from those who got a positive result from a competent company/franchise.

    Thanks

    Whilst you are asking about this has anyone tried the DIY option or paintless dent removal where you glue the little sticks on with the heat gun? I was thinking of trying for similar dents.

    I'm afraid I can't help for Melbourne, but I'll take the opportunity to put a plug in for this guy who's done a great job on several of my cars. As some will know, I am fussy but I've always been delighted with what Avron has done with getting dents out of 205s.

    Another one in Sydney, unfortunately.
    I can recommend CJ's Dent Removal at Taren Point (02 9526 6324). Did a fantastic job and I am also very fussy (no connection with him except being a happy customer).

    I’ve bought a kit off eBay but not yet got to use it. Mine was about $68 and includes quite a bit of kit including glue gun, glue sticks, three different types of pullers/attachments and the plastic and metal cup things.

    It appears that no one in Melb has used or recommends a dent removalist so I'll be looking for an excuse to head to Sydney!

    If you come to Sydney, can also recommend The Original Dentbuster - Paintless Dent Removal Sydney

    Francois started his career working for Citroen in France (displays a certificate on wall to indicate this). As his webpage suggests, his was the first company in Australia specializing in paintless dent removal (30+ years). He was saying last year that he will be retiring soon.
