With a dent like this in the past I would normally just pass on it. Plus this motorcycle fender lip was aluminum and that made it even more challenging.
To succeed in this paintless dent repair business, you only need to learn one thing: how to keep learning. That means each of us is going to find ourselves as a newbie, at some times and at some things. In a market that is ever changing and in which these changes seem to be happening ever faster, we are all going to wear the newbie hat — often.
