ok, has anyone taken care of the door dings in their ludes?

i have so many, and they keep looking uglier and uglier. not to mention some jackass scraped my pass. door before i bought it.

if you have taken care of this yourself, how did you do it, and how long did it take you? and what about the touch-up paint?

thanks...

if you can take apart your door panels...and if the ding is right where it can be reached...u take a average size nail...the tip should be about the thickness of a toothpick's shaft...pound the ding right dead center with the hammer and it should pop out...other than that u need to go to a body shop

when i do this, will any paint flake off?

also, when applying any touch up paint, whats the best way to blend it in (not making it so obvious)?

i plan on repainting my car when i get my kit, so thats why i don't care so much about perfection...:D

nah....OEM paint is very strong...but if you're gonna get a kit and repaint the whole car....the shop will charge u for plugging up those dings....so learn to patch it up using Bondo before u take it there...save money...
