Dent removal services Vs. fitting new doors?

Got plenty of door dings on both sides

Most are pretty minor, but spoil the look of the car somewhat! Mostly all without any paint damage at all, but the drivers side door edge looks like it's been opened against a wall and has some definite paint damage and edge distortion

Just trying to weigh up the options of getting a Dent Magician of sorts to pop out the dents, or just buying a new set of doors of the same paint code and fitting them... Not as if there's a big shortage of GT's being broken for parts!

Thoughts anyone?

Dent man every time if paint is good. My GTV was riddled with trolley dings. Paid the dent man for a day's work and he removed the lot. No evidence of a dent at all.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did that set you back?

I've got a few dings on the rear quarter panels too which obviously new doors wouldn't repair!

To be honest I don't know as it was all wrapped up in the big bill for various jobs I had done at the time. I'll ask the question though...

I've asked the question £35 a panel or £60 for a car !

As I said no brainer really, as it avoids any paint colour match issues etc !

I thought they were dearer.. somethinglike £80 a door.. but for the sake of keeping your own doors, it's got to be cheaper than a seconda mano jobbie that might have its own issues.
