hi anyone no of any good Paintless Dent Removal
frims in and around cambs
or maybe start a new section on this addmin ;)

dent master! will be in yellow pages.. they are good.. if you dont get a complete cowboy.. but i'd say you'd be very very very very very unlikely to get a cowboy when nothing but perfect is good! 10-30 minutes work, charge about 45-70 probably!

i wanted to know if ne1 can help i have a ford ka w reg and have just spent alot on having the whole car resprayed and wanted to match the inteiror plastic aroung the dials and cd player etc i have seen it done but i wanted a good finish like some ive seen and dint no if i wud re spray it with the correct paint or have one made any suggestions?

hi just make sure you get plastic primer and away you go.. is it textured plastic? or smooth?

Key it, Prime it, spray it..
(Red Scoth Brite pad)->(Plastic Primer)->(Basecoat then lacquer)

if you want a really good finish flat it with 2000 or above be careful not to take the lacquer off and then use some Farecla G3 and elbow grease! (other brands are available) :P

Should be able to pick up everything from Halfords.. again other shops are available :)

Thanks Nick, but the point was that the scratch had removed the paint. No amount of flatting would put back the paint so how did "buffing" do it?

simple SMart repair.. or the old marker pen trick ;) haha!
