Kia Ce’ed GT Tailgate damage

Kia Ce’ed GT Tailgate damage

Late in July, I was heading over to Poringland to administer first aid to this rather tasty looking Kia Ce’ed GT. Unfortunately, the reversing camera didn’t notice the 80ft tree in its path and the resulting impact left this rather nasty dent on the left side of the tailgate. Access was good and to be fair, most of the dent reduced within 10-15 minutes.  However, I often explain to my customers that its the last 20% that takes 80% of the time.  This repair was no different and required a lot more attention before it was ready for inspection.

Anyway, after a couple of hours using a combination of glue pulling and rod pushing techniques, I was able to achieved a 90% + improvement.  Mr M had been quoted a considerable amount for the replacement and respray of the entire tailgate, needless to say he was happy with my invoice for under £100!
