ok, well two nights ago someone shot at me while driving and left a dent in my door and smashed my drivers side window. Anyway, I got the window fixed but what should I do about this dent.



Also, I am going to a meet tomorrow, should I not wash my car because of this?

what did they shoot you with?

I would go ahead and clean it unless it is supposed to rain or something.

I think it was an airsoft gun, cause he got three consecutive shots off rahter quickly. At the time I thought it was a real gun cause there was a hole in my window and my passneger had ducked down screaming, I thought he had been shot. But everythings good now. I'm gonna put a piece of tape over it and clean the car in the morning.

few airsoft guns doesnt have the ability to break glass...

As for the dent, you can take it to a PDR site or buy a "ding king" or "pops-a-dent". If the paint is cracked, however, you are SOL. That will require repainting.

Did you report the incident to the local police? This should be something your insurance agency could take care of.

It looks like the bullet is still in there.
It it is, you have a lot more work to do than just taking out a dent.

i play paintball and airsoft all the time no airsoft could do that and maybe a paintball but there would have been goo all over the place and the hole would be pretty big like .68 caliber size. you seriosly need to contact the police because that does look like a gun shot and if it left that big of a dent and went through your window it was a bullet a paintball would have to be shot like 5 feet away to go through glass dude you seriously need to get that looked at
