Ooooooohhhh...that's the difference between a knife wound and a bruise. PDR will leave the scar, so you'll need a good plastic surgeon.

To the person 2 posts ago, I didn't fix it, so no "after" shot..

I'd be OK w/ the scar.. It's still white.. It would just be a scratch instead of a dent.
There are videos of looong deeep creases being fixed on youtube.. But I guess the reason they're on youtube is because it's not common to fix issues like that..

Still, when the guys tell me "not possible" I want to sit them down and show them the videos.. Just because YOU can't do it doesn't mean no one can! f'rs.......

Where in the midwest are you. I know a good PDR in North Chicago IL. I don't know if he could do that one but if you're in the area its worth sending the photo and asking.

I had a sharp dent fixed, not nearly as long as that but yeah they can be done by very good PDR. The problem is that when its that sharp the metal stretches and so only the best will be able to work it back to some level of normal.

I'm down in STL. If the car was new I might consider driving up there for a couple days, but not worth it anymore. It's 9 old now!

As I said earlier depends on the skill and experience of the PDR person you find. If you can't find one of these then you have no choice but traditional body work but you want as little filler as possible when all is said and done.


And as one IT technician to another it is time to dispose of all the old outdated computer equipment that caused the issue in the first place.

WHHAAAAAAAATTT?!?!?!? heh.
I'd like to argue w/ you, because some old parts are good to have around, but unfortunately you're correct.. I think it was a core2 duo system that caused the damage.. I wasn't going to need parts out of that for anything. I did clean out my 'inventory' after that, but now am replacing a bunch of 4th through 6th gen i5's at a few clients offices and will probably keep stacks of those for a while.

Build as many usable machines you can and either sell them or donate to places that can't afford new. Much better than having them cost money by causing damage!
