How can I get this out to where it looks cleanest. Itll never look new again, I know but its embarrassing.

How can I get this out to where it looks cleanest. It’ll never look new again, I know but it’s embarrassing. I already got the yellow off.

What equipment/tools do I need?

    You just fill the entire thing with bondo, sand it down, and paint it with rattle cans (search by vin).

    Body repair is probably the single hardest aut/o/motive job to DIY. If it was just a popped dent in a plastic bumper I'd say hit it with a heat gun and force it out, but any paint damage pretty much requires a professional to get it looking right. Those guys are artists, notice how collision repair is its own separate business from regular mechanics? Getting the yellow off was about the best you could do.

    Do what most of my customers do and file a claim through your insurance and send it to a body shop and you'll have an unwrecked car.

    Deflate a sports ball
    Put behind panel
    Setup pump to ball
    Get hot water (don't do this when it's cold otherwise you'll frick shit up replace with room temp water)
    Pump the sports ball of your choice up behind the panel
    Next pour water at the same time as you inflate the ball.

    If all said and done properly, chances are it'll pop back into place naturally due to the properties of the material. Adjust the ball accordingly to push more dents out.

    A car hit me in a parking lot while I was shopping and drove away. I have a 2018 CTS same color as yours. The damage in your pic is nearly identical to the damage my car suffered. I paid $3800 to a body shop and it looks like new. This is in California. Like the autobody shop owner said above, file a claim and get it fixed.

        As another poster said, the rear quarter panel goes all the way over the doors and the body shop has to grind it and repaint it all. You have to remove the dent, smooth it out, grind it and repaint it all. It takes at least a few days, so a shop will charge you accordingly. Have you ever had body work done before (and priced it out)? Have you tried body work before yourself? You can't DIY and make it disappear but a body shop can. If you are driving a nice car for reasons, you aren't going to rattle-can over the dents you'll pay somebody to make it look new again.

        Also, don't take the Lord's name in vain.

    You have 2 options:
    >Take some metalworking + 3d sculpting + painting classes at your local college
    or
    >Pay $400-700 to a body shop guy to get it looking like new
    This isn't just wrenching, you need actual artistic talent + training to fix dents like that

    frick GM. Their rear quarter panels go up the C pillar and all the way down the A pillar. Have to remove half the body to replace something that should be simple.

    Just push it out from inside. Maybe look into the basket ball trick thing. This circled creasing and probably all along that bottom would need hammer and dolly work to get out but then youre painting it and I don't think you want to go that far.
