This was the worst cosmetic blemish on the '98 I picked for cheap the day after thanksgiving.
So removed the rear fascia. Very easy BTW. About fifteen minutes to remove at leisure. Then used a heatgun to heat the dented portion and surrounding area from the inside. Then pressed the dent out.
I will take care of the paint issues when the weather is a bit nicer. Some other small areas that need addressed at that time too. Huge improvement and much better than looking at a crater... One thing at a time. Can't wait for more nice days.

Looks much better - that made a huge difference. What a nice Black Friday score!

Nice work, sall. Looking forward to the prep/respray pics. You're gonna do the entire piece aren't you?
Correct. There is a small amount of rust above the fascia molding on the passenger quarter panel. A common issue with the Classic. So that will be addressed too. it needs blended in with the fender anyways.
I love aurora and intrigue bumpers they very flexible and strong at same time unlike other cars cheap plastic that cracks with small hit to the bumper.
