grocery cart dent removal

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am as my daily driver, and I like the car a lot and all. Well some stupid person let their cart drift into the side of my ride!

(grrr... I was angry!)

There is no cracked paint or chips, how do I go about fixing this? It's quite shallow and about 2" long.

Can I do it with a suction-cup thingy they sell at parts stores?

The dent will probably have to be worked out from the inside. A paintless dent removal business should be able to handle it for a reasonable fee.

and in the future if you catch someone driving a shopping cart recklessly I suggest putting a matching dent in the side of their head...with like a fist or something. Kidding of course...those are the things we'd feel like doing but can never do. I have a huge crater in the driver's door of my minivan courtesy of some fine upstanding customer at the local Home Depot... I haven't done it yet but I have been advised that paintless dent removal is the way to go.

Good luck with yours and happy head-knocking

Ha Ha! This is funny, not that someone let thier cart drift into your car, but that I just posted on this very thing in another thread "bondo vs lead". It came up as a hypothetical situation there, and now you have the real deal.

Hmm, that's actually kind of freaky.

ditto. sadly it's not working too well. people have ZERO respect for each other's property... except for us hotrodders for the most part (how many people go feeling each other's cars at cruise night? Who does it and walks away alive?)
