    i once watched a vid i think on youtube. it was how they used ice blocks to repair dents. i dont know if this would be helpful in your case. u can diy if u want. just get the ice block that they put in coffins and a pair of glove. it can be used for small dents. no need to paint back if the paint is not damaged as shown on the vid.

    it is called dry ice. just came to my mind.

    Bro, using dry ice to fix a dent at the A pillar, I wouldn't do it if I were u. Being so close to the windscreen any temperature variation to the windscreen might cause it to crack.

    this looks to be a better option.

    this using ice works. but its still not the one i saw last time.

    Hi

    Thanks for all your comments. It made me feel much more secure to fix the dent. Got the car fixed up a week ago. Sent it to a workshop in old klang road.
    The guy told me he could fix the dent and respray it for RM150.
    After that, i add a little more work for him to fix ALL the dent around the car. ( Bumper, side skirt, Front Bumper, loosen clip, Plastic cowl, faded black rubber ). All of that for RM700.

    So once again. Thank You all of you! Got the car fix. And im totally happy with it! :proud:

    Next move... i think im in need to change the absorber. It feels too hard. Whenever i went pass a bumper or a hole, the car jolt as if there were no suspension....
