You can go to one of those guys who fix dents, I know a good one on LA area, but since the paint it's cracked, I think that the best way to go it's get an estimate to fix it and paint it, maybe fix it paintless first and leave it ready just to paint may be cheaper. I think that to fix it paintless would be $150 and to fix it and paint it at a collision shop could be around $500.. Just get estimates..If you try to fix it, you'll get a 2x4 there and it will look horrible. If you do try to fix it, you can try a metal roll or someting like that and from inside roll it and push it out at the same time,

Good luck

Maybe find a shop that will fix the dent itself, because that one looks pretty big
Then clean up the area and try to see if you can do a good job using touch up paint and clearcoat, just to hold it over.
I personally wouldn't spend a lot of money to repair a dent like that, but to each his own, eh?

Ouch! that sucks. Ive learnt to never fix the dents in the back of the car. 1. cause i can't see it. 2. cause im not willing to pay for cab fares for a week or two, when it wasn't my fault in the first place. And I only have3rd party insurance. So, if I can't see it. Its not there. Im done trying to make the body of my car as perfect as possible. Its a bit decent now. And the engine runs fine.

POPS A DENT or DING KING ALL DAY :clap:!!! haha.. it works though but you seen the commercials they put the hot glue on the pulling tab but its not like that you have to leave the tab on the dented part of your car for 5 min then you can pull but it'll take more then one try to pull the dent out. I took the dent out of my door in 5-10 trys I waited 2 months before i took the dent out and by that time the temperature outside was brick cold.

not bad for $20 bucks you can buy pops a dent at walmart for $18.95 its in the automotive section bottom shelf near the touch up paint. i only know because i ordered ding king online and was pissed when i went to buy primer and saw it at the bottom shelf. lol :lol:

word of advice. this goes for DING KING product the GLUE they use is black and strong as hell they said to use it only on OEM paint but if you do buy this when you go to pop the dent and you hear that POP metal sound the pulling tab it pop back but the glue might stick to your cars paint and be a ***** to take off so I learned to take a heat gun remelt the glue take the putty knife they give you and take the glue off. But you'll still have the resin left over from the glue soo step 2 is to buy GOO GONE the yellow stuff that take any kind of glue adhesive off and spray it on for 3-5 min and wipe it away and WOOOLAHH! just like new no more glue. The instructions don't tell crap about how to take the glue off soo word of advice if you lived near me i'd help you out. I seen the dry ice and compress air its very hard.
