Dent in the door....Ouch

Heart damn pain now....
Earlier this evening, wifey opens the door without checking and slam the passenger's sides door right into a pillar.

Now the door have a few dinks and is slightly dented.
Felt like something stabbed the heart but still cannot be angry at wifey coz she did not do it on purpose afterall.

Sigh....anyone have any shops to recommend for such repairs?
(To knock the dent out and maybe touch up the paintwork)

it is dent only, though a little bit of paint is chipped off as well.
But it is the uneven surface of the door and breaks my heart.
I will try Ah Lye with since there are such strong support from Glanza and Fugu.

there are PDR kits can search online..

this reminds me of 1 time i saw an incident take place, (someone else's car)
the guy and his gf going into the car, the girl's door was next to a curb.
the curb is about as high as the bottom edge of the door.
when she open the door the door scrapped the curb at the bottom and got jammed. then she proceed to sit in the car, by sitting inside the height of the car got lower, now the curb is higher than the door therefore exerting even more pressure upwards the bottom edge of the door. then when closing the door, since the door is stucked, she just tugged and tugged at the door until it colsed

so thats tripple 'ouch' for you. door got jammed by the curb, door got pressed upwards against the curb & door got dragged and scrapped!!

rule, dont fetch dumb chicks.

I've got mine fixed at Lye too. Price is reasonable if you got more dents. But some dents near the edge of the wheel arc can't be removed.

it all depending on how deep n wide of the dent and dose u put any sound proofing materials. pricing range is unknown.. if yours is clean from sound proofing materials a dent is about 10 min the for normal dent causing from opening doors, most like wise it depending how deep n wide the dent..
