Default Hail Damage

Of course it happened to me, anyone every have this happen ? if so how were the repairs, did it look good after? I never had a dent, or in this case many dents fixed before.

Paintless dent removal guys have this repair down to an artform.

I have seen 50 cars at a dealership get repaired over a week and you wouldn't even know the car had ever been touched.

Relax, they got it covered

You'll be fine with some PDR, just don't pay some micky mouse $100. PDR is gonna cost you a good chunk of change depending on where and how many dings/dents you have but it will look fine. For instance I got quoted around $400 for about 15 dings/dents on my car.

Looks like you have a black car. Keep your fingers crossed that they total it.

Ouch, sorry to hear it. I think pdr will be fine on the steel panels. On aluminum such as the hood and trunk lid, not so much. A friend had a good size dent in his hood and had it fixed. It looked good at first, but as soon as he touched it the dent went back into place.

That's always a big risk with summer storms unfortunately. Sorry it happened to you.

If there's any on the hood, then that's not good. I received hail damage on the hood and passenger side most and end up having to replace the entire hood. Thank god for insurance.

I received heavy damage bumper to bumper. Even the hood. A good PDR guy can fix anything. The storm my car went through was so bad that every house in my subdivision got a new roof. One side of my house got resided as well. My car is perfect now.
