Hmmm....I've heard of auto body shops removing hail damage from cars, I don't see why it wouldn't work for a TT.

By the way.....there are no stupid questions. I call them informational questions.

You might talk to one of those Paintless Dent Repair shops and get their take. I just had a dent removed from my truck and you can't even see where it was. They do an amazing job.

Spending nearly 40 years in a collision repair shop, I would offer one piece of advice. Speak with as many folks as possible that have used a PDR service in your area. I know of one in our area that is an absolute magician. You can not tell where a dent was when he is finished. On the other hand I can tell you of a case where a different PDR guy "repaired" hail damage on a van roof and we had to REPLACE the roof when he was done. He had ruined the roof. Remember aluminum is very different from typical automotive sheet metal. I w.ish I could be more helpful

How did you make out with the PDR? did it work? I am in a similar circumstance with a panel on my camper.
