    Removing Torque Dimples!

    I just saw that I have some new tq dimples forming on my quarter panel and its really bothering me. For those that dont know what they are, they are the lil "dents" from the rear axel twisting a lot creating crumples/dimples in your 1/4 panels.

    I was wondering if anyone had good luck removing them with a paintless dent removal tool?

    Is it necessarily bad to have them? Because I have one that I know of.. But like he said^. I've been proud of it.

    I would not try to remove them yourself. I tried once and made it worse. My paintless dent guy is awesome and makes it look real simple but it's not. My guy rid of a few of them and I cannot tell they were ever there. I always get rid of them cause personally I think they look ghetto.

    Yeah, top of the quarter panel, yeah a PDR man should be able to get his hand under there but the question IS: whats under there, another layer of solid metal or is it exposed?
    If its exposed and you can feel the underside of that "dent" their should be no problem, IMHO. YMMV

    Those are not "FAMED" 1/4 dents everyone speaks of!

    They happen just rear of doors on the tops of the 1/4 panels......................can't miss them because the body looks sorta of WRINKLED and pushed. My 99 wrinkled the passenger side badly.

    The dents you are showing are from something hitting and dinging the body. The 1/4s don't wrinkle back there! GEEz you guys really think up some good ones.
