Hey guys, this is really stupid lol... I was leaning on my FD the other day and I dented it just above the rear wheel on top of the rear 1/4 panel. How can I get access to that area to pop it back out? Thanks guys.
Best of luck with the fix. I can relate. A few years ago I was filling with gas at the pump and I was not paying attention and moved the wrong way. Then I heard a cracking noise and my fill cover broke off and fell to the pavement. lol. Stuff happens.
I always feel like I'm going to dent my FD whenever I touch it. the metal just feels so thin, every time I slam the door or lean on one of the fenders, I feel like it's going to just fall in...
It's part of FD lore....Johnny Carson's band leader bought an FD when they first came out, but a short time later he brought it back to the dealer with several dents in the car from leaning on it. He said the car was too fragile for his taste. (If you ever saw the clothes this guy wore, you know taste wasn't something he had a lot of.)
Miatas are the same way. I rented an early series MX-5 once and while putting my hand on the rear deck and leaning on it to fold in the rear window I found I had left a big depression in the metal. And I wasn't leaning on it hard at all.
Mazda made the steel on these cars thin to hold down weight and increase performance.
