I've used one a couple of times a few years back and though I had to wait for him to fit me in he was great, came to the house and removed 3-4 dings for about $150 if I remember correctly. Can't remember which one it was though.

Any recommendation for a good one would come in handy, I'd like to get a dent on the MR2 out before I put that one up for sale...

Apex Image has the best social media presence and they are mobile. I might give them a shot since they appear to be the most savy as far as getting before and after images out for wouldbe customers.

Mind providing some feedback if you have them do the work?

Finally got around to getting this done.
I used Justin at Apex Image. http://www.apeximagenv.com
https://www.instagram.com/a.i._crown_dentrepair/
He made it pretty simple. Hit him up with a text, sent a few pics over and he gave an estimate.
I text him when i was ready and he had me come by an hour later since the time worked for us. He is also mobile but didn't want "some guy" knowing where i park my car. We got to talking and found out we actually know tons of the same people so that chat was nice while he was working.
I had 4 dents i needed out of my hardtop . Was very nervous because of my research showing the headliner needing to be removed and was not going to have that done as its a royal pain in the rear end and although sounds simple enough, wasnt something i wanted to have done in order to get my dents out. (Seen too many headliners not fitting right after they have been removed)
Justin decided a "glue pull" was the best option on a couple as they wouldnt budge with the access he had from the inside without removing the headliner.
I would say he got 80% out, mainly because one was on such a bad spot (near where the glass meets the metal ) and another where one wouldnt come out and just ended up being there still, just not as bad.
I was quoted 100 and ended up paying 80.
I wish i had more pics but this is all i grabbed. Youll probably have to look pretty hard depending on your computer or phone and eyesight but you can spot them. The last pic is the "after" and the dents would be in that pic if they were visable.
