Exclamation Do not apply excessive force on your frame above doors.

Brought my car for paint protection, found some dents above window frame after completion. If you're going for car detailing or doing own washing, do not apply body weight on those delicate frames.



3 minor dents can be found after detailing.


Repairs at PDR (Paintless Dents Repair)


Impressive workmanship, good as new.

Hahaha.....I can't put the blame on this guy, I'll do the same if I were him. It's natural for us to support own body weight with one hand pressing the frame in order to reach the other side. Natural reaction.

Wow... does it seem to anyone else that the frame is unreasonably weak if leaning on one hand can dent it?? I'm not thinking safety; I'm sure there's a strongly engineered rollover frame. Just the potential for getting just this kind of damage, especially if you have the racks and are up there taking things on and off.

Makes me wonder about the strength of other body panels, like doors, fenders, hood etc. Maybe one of you new owners can go out and bang around a bit, see how easy it is to dent the panels!

Seriously, though, this does concern me a bit.

Meh. I've done the same with the front fender on my old Toyota Avalon while working under the hood. Right on the fricken top of the fender where it meets the hood.

I've done the same on my Civic Si Ep3 for Fender and it's a matter of how much force you press against it. I was fixing my Rally Armor mudflaps and it got bent.
