dent in wing
#1
After getting stuck in the snow yesterday and having someone help to push my Berlingo away from the kerb a kind passer-by has pushed my front wing in. A larger dent has pulled out with one of those sucker things but there are a couple of smaller dents where the wing is shaped. The guy basically put his feet up on the bank next to the van and give it a full on press against the wing. (nice of to help but he obviously I`m not happy....)

If I remove the plastic liner is there access to the rear of the wing? I know I can tap it out as long as I have access... It`s the vehicle I use for work so it`s important to me that it looks right.

Many thanks in advance

There's not much space but some; can you not use the heat and chill method of a hairdryer and freezing spray?

The dents are quite small so I doubt it would work....

Just a follow up to this as today I sorted my dents with one of these kits. Worked perfectly on the 2 small dents I was left with.... Cheap as chips and the wing looks as good as new now.

Looks an interesting system, but I hope you didn't rely too much on the instructions on the ebay page, which seems to have been translated from Chinese via Swaheli! eg:

6, the traction tension bridge in the middle holes in cement traction spacer rod, the screw rotary knob condom in Traction gasket rod, slowly tightened, until the dent portion is pulled to the surface of the same around the flush .

I followed it to the word which is obviously why it worked so well!
