    For as heavy as these cars are the sheet metal is very thin! I had the dent dude out to fix a little dimple in the center of the trunk where a small branch fell on it in the drive. could hardly see it, but I knew it was there.
    While he was working with it he said you want those other ones fixed too!? After he pointed them out there was one above the rear wheel you could see in the right light, stress wrinkles where they tightened the side mirrors and where you pull the door handles. The soft one in the quarter he thinks the delivery driver did squeezing by to get to the car on the trailer, so fixed it. The stress wrinkles are going to have to stay. I didn't notice them till he pointed them out. Look hard and you'll find stuff you didn't see!!!

    You were in a parking lot. Did someone ding your quarter panel?
