This 5 series BMW bonnet dent repair in Northwich was one of the most difficult dents i’ve faced over the last 16 years. Not only was the dented panel aluminium but it ran through a strong and pronounced bodyline and was badly stretched.
Whilst time consuming at nearly 3 hours and extremely complex the end result was a delight to the customer.
When this vehicle arrived with me today I realised my error immediately. I’d originally quoted and arranged the repair over the telephone and failed to remember that this particular vehicles bonnet opens the opposite way to most. Normally, not so much of a problem, but in the position this dent was located it caused me some problems. Added to this the dent was very slightly stretched (which is very rare contrary to belief about most dents), it was aluminium and to make matters more difficult it was trapped underneath the underside of the bonnets bracing.
After an hour and having put my body in a variety of awkward and sometimes uncomfortable positions the dent was removed. Whilst not a 100% perfect repair in this case, we came very close!
