What happens when you are in Minneapolis and someone comes up and KICKS the side of your car. You end up with a LARGE DENT about a size 12 shoe that is left in the quarter panel. Just like the one in this Mercedes.

So what do you do? Watch this video to see what happens.

So my customer was downtown Minneapolis one evening when some guy comes up to his car and gives a good swift kick right to the left rear quarter panel. Now he has the large dent in his nice Mercedes. Needless to say he was not very happy with this.

It’s a good thing he brought the car into us at Excel Dent Removal to have paintless dent removal done to repair this dent. With the paintless dent repair (PDR) method I was able to remove this large dent without having to repaint the car. You will see in the video that the PDR method involves gaining access to the back of the panel to push the dents out from the inside. For this large dent in the Mercedes quarter panel it meant taking out the tail light and exposing the opening behind it.

Often with large dents there will be a “crown”. This is what happens when the vehicle gets dented. The metal doesn’t just go inward but has to move somewhere and can cause the metal extrude out. Much like the ripples in the water when a rock is thrown in. You will see in the PDR video that I had to use a special hammer to knock down the crowns to straighten the metal.
