A while back, reversing out of a café carpark I crunched the non-drivers side wheel arch into a bollard positioned below my mirror line of sight. Ouch. I'm told to repair and repaint the orange size ding that they will fix the repair on the car, then need to remove the bonnet for a total re-spray, then refit it to the car. I hoped it could be patch repaired just on the ding location but as it bent over the wheel arch lip line they can't just press it out. I'm in two minds here, it needs fixing but I'm a little nervous that the paint work, even when done professionally, will still be noticeable to me now as the whole bonnet gets done vs the little out of usual sight location of the ding. Has anyone had experience with similar, and how did you feel about getting this kind of work done? Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated before I finally decide to take which action on the matter.
