    North-East
    Does anyone know of any reputable paintless dent repair shops/techs in the New England area? While I was at Autofair Honda (who uses Dent Wizard for their PDRs) a couple weeks back I was quoted ~$250 to repair the dent pictured below.

    The Permatex kit is a great cheap and easy way to fix and patch small cracks/spiders, etc. yourself. There are other similar kits, but this one is very effective for simple repairs.
