I would also recommend a device sold on Amazon called "The HitchHammer". Made of rubber, it is designed to compress a bit on minor impact, preventing or minimizing upstream damage.
I’d surely try a PDR first and let him do his best and see how it turns out. But for $5K to $6K and potential for a rate increase, I think I’d live with it.
Yeah yeah yeah. Jeez, what an attitude some people have.Yeah. I don't know why, but it seems like the users here tend to over-react. I mean, it does generate clicks and drives engagement.
- Have a slow-leak in a tire so better sell the entire car.
- Winter rubber is making some noise at 60mph so need a full refund on wheels (rims, tires, TPMS).
- Now have a dent so need to replace the entire lift gate.....
People here know what to do. 1) PDR first. 2) Bring to a body shop for bondo + repaint if it's not "absolutely perfect".
They did a fantastic job with the repair. Matched the color perfectly too. Can't even tell now. Grats!We took the Model Y to Bruno the Dent Wizard in Elmwood Park. He came recommended by Felix at Always Clean Cars, who does great work with detailing and ceramic coatings. Bruno leveled with us that he might have to send it Park Auto Body at the same location. They did a great job. You can see the results in the photo below. This mistake cost us $950, but at least we have a good body shop now. Another body shop recommended by Tesla wanted double.
