Nose Section Dent Repairable? Need Advice !!

7 posts in this topic Last Reply

Hello fellow FAQ members ! I recently purchased my first 02 and am in the process of restoring it, although there is a very noticeable dent on the nose panel to the right of the headlight just above the bumper insert. Does the dent look repairable? If so how would you recommend I go about having it repaired?

I've had the nose panels on both my cars with worse dings (caused by an errant tire tread flung from a semi on the Interstate and a coyote who wasn't paying attention to where he was going, respectively) that were easily repaired by a good body man with hammer and dolly--and very little filler... Fix, don't replace it.

How much can I expect to pay for it to be repaired?

Depends on the shop in your area.

 

Labor rate I am charged is $100/hour for metal & body work. So the shop you get a quote from may be more or less.
