Default Removed dents successfully by DIY

Hello friends,

Since last few weeks, some idots in my office parking made shallow dents on both fenders of my indica.

This weekend i tried my self, for LH fender, i created a recess to reach back side of fender by loosening plactic mudguard.

took towing hook, wrapped it with a cloth to form an improvised soft mallet. Few care full dings & fender sprung back to original shape.

However could not reach the dented area of RH fender, will do it next weekend.Luckily the paint is intact without scratches so it looks as if nothing happened.

I think the problem is with paint chipping off. Worked good for you though.

Pics before & after would have been a lot better. These things are quite tricky. Good that you got it right.

Has anyone used the touch up paint sold by Compaints or something ? Supposed to match the exact colours of different models.
