Crease in body panel help?!?!?

Hi Guys,
I am looking to buy an 86. It is immaculate apart from a thin crease on the passenger side front fender. The crease is about 100mm long and sits just above the curve of the fender. Its a pretty sharp indentation and I'm wondering what I would have to do to fix it if I was to buy the car. You can see the change in light reflection in the image below.

Thanks

I believe paintless dent repair service can fix that, someone will probably come along and correct me if I'm wrong.

On second thought, might be way too big for PDR fix....

See if you can get a discount off the sale price, btw.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I've already bargained using that. He offered to repair it. He said that it would be tapped out. 'm not sure what he meant by that but that crease really annoys me. Any idea how it could have been created?

Tapped out is Paintless Dent Repair. They will make that all but invisible. You may still be able to see where it was if you angle your head, squint with the right light angle and hold your tongue out properly but nobody else will ever know it was there.

Doesn't matter unless you are going to send your car to Texas. If the dealer will fix it then not an issue. If they aren't then call around to local shops and get estimates from them instead of asking somebody on a different continent what they paid.

You can buy a fender for $50?

PDR LOOKS so easy.
After watching many videos and reading up on PDR technique I added a basic kit to my Christmas wish list. Will see how this goes in the spring
