Default Bashed Door - What Should I expect To Pay For Repair?

Hi folks,

I can't imagine how it happened, but when I came back to my Civic in the
parking lot after doing some grocery shopping yesterday, I found two
*slight* bumps on my driver's side door. The paint wasn't scratched or
anything - it looks like somebody's kicked it or something. Anyway, they
aren't that noticeable looking straight on, but as the car is quite new
and still shiny, it sticks out like a sore thumb in bright sunlight and
from certain angles.

Can anyone tell me the best way to have it repaired i.e. should it be
beaten back into shape, or can I use one of those suction-type things?
What should I expect to pay to have it fixed?

Thanks in advance!

- Best regards,
Lee

I'd call the Dent Doctor or a similar type entity that charges "by the
panel" as that is most cost effective.

if they aren't too deep, try an old-fashioned toilet plunger (the one with
the rubber cirlce on the end), wet the bottom of it, place over the dent and
quickly plunge in and out...

I know that this sounds strange but I successfully removed several
depressions on my car this way...doesn't work if the dents are near panel
edges of door guards.

The way to go is the Dent Wizzard, or they go by similiar names, don't do
the plunger fix.

Price depends on size, usually about $35 a ding.
