    Tell him to ask you if he wants to drill a hole somewhere.

    Some Body Shops want them do it without any drilling.

    It sounds like the dent guy has a decent reputation if you've seen his impressive work around town, so that alone would make me feel good. I'd rather pay a little more for someone like that than take a chance with someone cheaper with no reputation. Good luck!

    Looks like it was hit by a baseball. If you want to try a cheap way, there is a dent puller that uses an epoxy to secure the puller to the dent. Then you use the puller to remove the dent and a remover to release the epoxy. Wish I could remember the name. If it doesn't work, your only out a few dollars and can get it fixed at a body shop.

    Yes....I concur...definitely a baseball. 300$ sounds about right. Your lucky he didn't say 500-800$.

    If you think it bothers you now, imagine how much a shoddy repair will bother you

    At $300 thats a good price, its alittle to deep maybe foe paint less. Until then here is some classic entertainment.

    thank so much @Baldmonkey22 . i appreciate you taking the time to just sign up to post this. wow thats quite a drive for me. especially in a tundra, it will end up costing me just as much in gas. lol. i kid but i appreciate your input.

    for what its worth ... here is the guy i am talking about. a lot of local people use him and rave about him. so $300 sounds very reasonable and is the consensus. i will post images after i allow for it in my "MGM MODS piggy bank". :thumbsup:

    some crazy and amazing photos on this site.

    cheers!
