    that sucks man. fake it with bondo + touchup pens for now? then expect some more to show up in the near future...

    sounds like someone has it out for you...

    edit: and your shooter is more than 50 yards away. they were probably aiming for your window again but the wind interfered. just a guess...

    Dude that sucks!! I would park your car somewhere else if you can. My friend fell into my passenger side door last summer while camping and he had to pay the $500 deductable to get it fixed. This sort of thing sucks cause its so small but costs a lot to fix still...

    Re: help - small dent repair

    I have a dent EXACTLY like that but on my hood from a gnarly rock. I haven't fixed it yet cause i don't feel like spending a million dollars on paint, even though I can do it myself. The best way to do it is bondo. Your biggest problem would be matching the paint. So more than likely, the whole panel/door would have to be painted and then some for blending purposes. If you aren't a decent body man, I wouldn't recommend you doing it, I would take it to a reputable shop. They would charge you maybe $400-500 to do it. I haven't been heavily exposed to estimating in auto body so I couldn't give you an accurate price.

    Re: help - small dent repair

    i was thinking of using bondo but it would probably be better to get it professionally done. $500 deductibles suck though.

    i wish whoever it was would just step up already. stop messing with my car and instead start trying to mess with me. punk ass b*****s...

    yea if you want the bondo to last it HAS to be done right, or it will crack and chip off in 6months.

    just stake it out one night and shoot the SOBs that shoot your car. (with a bb gun of course :P)

    Re: help - small dent repair

    Heat gun warm up the metal then a. Ball ping hammer tap with the ball until smoothed out make sure it is warmed up so the metal is malleable
    then just touch up paint
    Only got a gallon in the gas tank but I'm almost to the finish line and I cant stop now
