    The denter won't pop it out. He would just apply some filler and paint it. Will cost around 500, with the paint...I think.

    The right way to get it repaired is to dent out the whole thing and repaint the panel. From personal experience, I would say tht it will cost u anything between Rs 1000 - Rs 1500(could be more at the dealership).

    well, i asked a denter home and he told me that he'll pop out the dent and will take 4400 for the job with the painting stuff....bytheway, he reaffirmed with me that he wont just "fill" the dent and call it a day...

    i wanted to confirm if he was ripping me...

    A good denter for surely will charge you something like Rs. 1800-2500 for this. Of course, this include denting and painting the whole door.

    But if you want to get rid of the dent with some minor touching... i guess Rs 700-1000 is good enough.

    @insaan! i think the best would be just get the dent fixed, with some touching. no need of getting the door repaint.

    I think better run it like that, since in case of any shortcut, it will become more visible. If you still want to get it repaired, better get it properly dented and painted. It will cost you around Rs.3500-4000 with better quality paint and matching.

    If you are willing for the dent-paint job, contact Mr. Athar @ 051-4433107 (Central Automobile Engineers, I-9, Near Opposite Caltex Petrol Pump, Islamabad)

    Well this task could be done in an amount ranging from Rs.1500~2500/=, but the matching department will not be well catered. Better leave it as it is!

    @ Insaan! Here is my experience. sometime back one of my car was hit by a pajero of my multinat. company, while parked in pc burban. the company agreed to get it repaired. i was asked to take it to Mitsubishi Motors, Islamabad...and they said they will charge 1000 for denting and another 2500 for the paint. but i have to leave the car for about 3-5 days. which i refused. then we went a workshop behind PSO pump (Civic Centre, Ibd). The person said 600 for the denting and 1200 for the paint. I told him just do the denting as I dont want a repainted door. So lucky for that company they got away by only paying Rs. 600. by the way car is mehran and is in white color.

    make sure you get bake aka "bhatti" paint on the door, if you decide to dent&repaint it. best of luck.
