So i found a dent on my roof today

So yeah um today when i was leaving for class the sun was hitting my truck at the right angle and i noticed a dent right on the curved spot of the roof by the windshield. Umm is there a way to pull it out without spending an arm and a leg on paintless dent removal.

there are guys who do paintless dent removal, but that would probably cost an arm and a leg.

Paintless dent repair is like $75 - $125 a panel or so. Ask around and see what if you can get reviews on it. I used to work at a body shop and we had a guy that would do it for us. He was awesome. Some of these guys can really perform miracles and it is quite a bit cheaper than repainting. Remember, paint work is usually around $350 a panel. Not including fixing dents and stuff.
