Hey guys, last week i smashed my VS but not badly
The radiator support panel has been dinted near where the light connects and this is making it out of place by about 1cm. My new bonnet is missing the hole because it has been pulled out of place because of this dint. Panel beater says he needs to replace the hole support panel but i don't want to. Any ideas what to do?

replace the whole support panel....


you could tie it to a tree with some old seatbelts and reverse back. but it looks like a tight fold and i doubt itll come out. more likely itll pull the other side out too far and make your engine compartment a nice diamond shape.

it will never be the same if you slide hammer it out. replace the whole thing, it will cost a fair bit but it will be much worth it......

all your gaps will be **** if u slide hammer it out.

im a beater and i know that replacing it would be the best way to go
