fender damage  
I have a large dent in my right side (passenger) of the front fender quarter panel.  I was wondering if it is beyond what the paintless dent removal process can handle.

Answer
Hi Jer....First of all, thank you for sending along the two pictures....Unfortunately, the damage is too extensive for a paintless dent repair and a conventional repair as well from a cost effective standpoint. The cheapest repair in this case would be to replace the fender and have it refinished.

Hope this helps you out....Thanks for your question....Dave.
