Getting acorn dings in hood and roof

Since the 86 is the greatest car made in the last 30 years, it must be lightweight.

I got some dings from acorns last night. You ever get this?

I popped the hood and massaged the ding from behind and was able to remove about 80% of each ding. I might keep a blanket in the car for the next time I park under a tree.

Mine has a few. Doesn't bother me, I think it's a bit strange to expect something that delivers us through almost literally anything unequivocally to not take aesthetic damage eventually.

It sucks, but it happens. Get a different DD and put this one away if it's something you want to preserve

After parking under an oak tree every day for the past seven years, mine has at least 1000 dents. The hood is the worst, but all the steel panels have some dents too.


I've chosen to believe that it adds charming character, and improves aero like a golf ball.

I had 4 acorn dents and it pissed me off so much.

A few months later a hail storm came through and put approx 240 dents in the car. Some were quarter sized and 2mm deep. Hood, roof, trunk, fenders....
Insurance took care of it with PDR, 10/10 would park outside in the hail again as they took care of every dent on the car including ones from parking door dings etc.

Sold the car after a good paint correction cause the panels were in the best shape they have been since I got the car in 2012. Blessing in disguise, probably got another 1-2k for the car

No, in this case, it's the best metal ever. The reason I own a BRZ is because 2700. Outside of the Elise, this is the fastest handling car made in the last 30 years due to the weight. A few dings are totally worth the price of owning the best driving car of the new millennium.

It is pretty simple to remove the dings with a PDR kit, and it looks a lot better today.

Could'nt agree more with this. After owning a 3000gt VR4, I'd gladly trade lighter/weaker panels for tankiness. Damage is much easier to mitigate than material weight
