    Without going into the annoying detail I managed to scuff the trim strip on the passenger front door quite deeply, and also put a very faint crease in the door just below the trim strip. At first i thought it was just a scratch, which polished out with Swissol, but I then saw the crease.

    Chips Away are coming next week but not sure if they can do a crease/dent.

    Does anyone know of a company or can they suggest the best way to repair this without going to a bodyshop.

    Thanks

    Chipsaway should be able to sort it.

    We had a ladder blown onto our previous car. It left two marks on the A pillar and two sharp dents on the top of the wing. Chipsaway managed to sort it completely.

    The scuff should be easy for them to deal with.

    The paint is only damaged on the trim strip. A new one is £14.00 plus painting. Its the crease in the door that bothers me.

    I have heard of paintless dent repairs just hope they can do it.

    Not as yet. Chipsaway couldn't do the dent, and didn't feel they could repair the trim. It's very small damage but annoying all the same. Also since had someone reverse into my rear bumper and leave a small dent and the paint scraped. Not happy!
