Hello,

Looks too sharp for painless dent removal..... plus paint looks damaged already so it's a bodyshop job

That's a definite no for paintless dent repair as that wing is aluminium...

If the paints not cracked or it's not creased, it may well be when you pull it out as it's ally.

Where abouts are you based? I have a guy based in Kent who's brilliant. He'll likely tell you the same, though. That's not going to be paintless.

Where are you based ?, I used to use Paul from Dentzinc http://www.dentzinc.co.uk/ before I got my own PDR kit a few years back and now do my own and friends cars when needed.

He managed to sort most dents/dinks out which people said couldn't be removed but your wing is past PDR, might be able to improve it very slightly but due to where its on the lip and the area above it won't make much difference, you're better off getting another wing.

Sorry late reply.

Im based in Birmingham. Ive seen a lot of videos online with much much worse dents then mine being repaired but these guys are from america. If only we had some skilled people here to do the same jobs would be amazing. Having to buy a new wing and then having it painted would cost a lot and is out of my budget at the moment i wish i could
