Yep, it was done in the good old UK.

Every single dent was pushed/pulled out using the paintless dent removal method.

This image shows the F-Type bonnet after it was repaired.

I should say!

Worth keeping the paintless dent removal option in mind just in case you ever need it.

I’ve seen far worse dents being completely removed using this method without the need for body filler and paint etc. :-)

So silly question but I have to ask, how do people shut their doors, I don't like using the glass or body, but if you push it by the handle it beeps at you!

I push the door behind the handle, just a quick push enough to close without a big slam.

Same here (onto the door panel, just behind the door handle).....that's a good solid spot for closing the door nicely.

On a similar note, when you go to put your seat belt on, do you find that the seat belt tongue is tucked behind the inflatable side lumbar support and can be awkward to remove?

When I exit the car I've tried leaving the seat belt tongue in a few different areas but it always ends up in the same place!

I leave my belt over the side support. And try not to dislodge it as I slide out. But it can be awkward to get out when it slips down the side of the seat.

I've already tried that without much success but I'll give it another go.......better than digging the seat belt out from behind the inflatable side lumbar support!

Thanks, thats where i'd got to too, so glad it's the preferred method if a little awkward.

Replaced the plates and got rid of all the screws that fitted badly.

While I was at it, polished and ceramic coated the crossbar.
