Paintless Dent Repair

Does anyone know of a good, fair priced PDR person? My dent is above and to the rear of the front flare, accessable from behind above and below, with the flare off. I can reach it with my fingers.
Hoping to get finished up and back on the trail soon. Have done all the work myself up to this point.
Thanks all, for the rescue and recovery also.
Ken

That there is a badge of honor and build character.

I agree. But my wife does not...
So, the next step is...I gotta fix it!

Take the fender off and work that dent out.

That's a different approach. Just went out and looked at it again. I can see how to disconnect front of fender, not sure of the connections at the rear and the cowl. And behind the rock rail. Not wanting to do further damage to it either.

you can tape up edge's of your metal with blue tape and take the fender off. I was loking at mine awhile back. looks pretty simple. I have to rub that dimple out of the cowl. Wife wanted me to fix it last year. Maybe this year I will do that for her.

Also need a plastic rivet tool. The plastic rivets came in today, and are larger in diameter than what my Harbor Freight tool will fit. It fits up to 3/16 (4.8mm). Imagine that. I suppose that a local auto parts store will have a special tool to fit it.
I will start looking for that tonight.

Ok. Apparently a rivet tool for plastic rivets is special. Autozone and O'Reilly don't have one, and don't know who does...Anyone know about them?

Ok. Changed my mail ordering plan to buy from local vendors. The ones on the east coast took too long to get orders from.
So I ordered this part from CA. Orange County.
Plan still needs some tweeking, it ships from OHIO...
