    Hey guys,

    My girlfriends car got backed into the o the day and the other car drove off without saying anything. I was thinking if I took the door panel off I could pop it out from the back? I have also seen where people use a hair dryer and air duster to get it out. Does anyone have experience in this?

    I have seen the hair dryer duster video as well and I would start there myself.

    Somebody backed up into my LX's door summer 2012. Nice hit and run except I found her and extorted $600. I went to see my paintless dent removal guy and he was able to get the door back 98%. Charged me $200 but he popped out a few other dings I had as well.

    That does not look like a simple fix for a first timer to me...looks like some creasing on the lower ones & those are much harder to repair. I'm no body man by any means...so you might still improve things? Good luck & sympathy for this hit! Real bummer.
