semi repaired dent....what to do....

had a dent on my drivers side wing.... popped it out a little when i had my arch liner off one day, but a pretty shoddy repair job by myself, better than before but still an eye sore... so, instead of replacing the wing/getting it pro beaten, i thought id maybe look at a decal or something to cover it instead.... im kinda going down the rat look with the car (refurbed steel wheels/coilovers/decals etc) but a subtle one so dont wanna go rusty panels/OTT stickerbombing etc... but would like some ideas on what would work to "hide" this ding.... here is a pic of the damage, kinda hard to see with the reflections tho...

Re: semi repaired dent....what to do....

Decal will only make the dent worse

Needs Sanding - Filling - Sanding - Primer - Colour - lacquer to be honest

failing that try getting a Strong Sucker on it
Or Tapping it out some more

Re: semi repaired dent....what to do....

how would a decal make it worse? the dent is there to stay unless a teseo blue wing turns up very cheap.... either way its worth a shot.... let the ideas commeth....

Re: semi repaired dent....what to do....

Cant you see what a bodyshop would do? Surely for one dent it wouldnt cost a bomb if they were to pull it out instead of respraying etc Or a dent repair specialist
