So I managed to acquire some trail damage yesterday, fair amount of pin striping plus some decent sized dents in the rear 1/4 panel. I'm not too upset about it, stuff happens. Which is kind of funny since I don't even have 2500 miles on my 2012 yet, but oh well. MOST of the pin striping can be buffed out from the looks of it, however some of it is a bit gnarly and would require a repaint it looks like. Not a big deal, I've been thinking about having the roof painted / line-xing the entire rig anyways. The dents however are another issue. They looked like they MIGHT be able to be popped out from the inside for the most part, but I haven't looked at it yet.
I was also thinking that I MIGHT be able to cover them up with bushwhacker fender flares.
The dents are mostly at or below the level of the door handle, is that area even possible to push out from the inside / will the bushwhacker fender flares cover it up?
Pictures for reference.
I'm not in a terrible rush to get it fixed. I'm certainly don't think an insurance claim would be worth something like this which isn't really major.
Sure it's my daily driver, sure I'd like to have it be 100% spotless. But lets be honest, it's a truck / It will be taken off road, being free of scratches / dents isn't very possible.
