Default paintless dent removal... who's the best around Houston?

long story short... last night (friday) I came out to my car to see that there was a large dent in the rear quarter panel... the mark starts from the door (small scrape on the ding protector and no other damage) but is severely pushed in after an inch or two into the quarter panel, the area is lower, between the wheel well and door and I don't see any wheel well damage other than scratched paint on the lip... the small strip (ding protector) is cracked in many places but also conformed with the dent... it really just made me want to cry... no note or anything was left, so I'm stuck paying for it out of pocket (doubt insurance would want me to do a comprehensive claim anyway) ...

not entirely sure if this falls into the "problem area" on these cars because of any structural **** behind the panel... just have hopes that it can be done relatively easy ... keeping my fingers crossed though, don't want to replace the entire panel

Dent Blasters did mine. Did a great job, too. I had about six or seven door dings on each side before I finally decided to get it done (that's what you get for parking downtown).

(281) 580-3368

They might be able to get to that one by removing the interior panel.

Plus one for Lane's Hi-Tech, if i remember correctly the guy that removed the dents from my rear quarter panels was Jose. He did an awesome job. I thought the car was going to need to be painted and the quarter panels pulled, as a matter of fact, knapp chevy told me it was going to cost me 500+ to fix it. Jose got the dents out for a little over 300.

appreciate all the help...

been on the fence about getting insurance involved, but it's likely they'll view it as total panel replacement, but on the other hand, I have many options now as to where to take it...
