    I've just made a bit of damage to the side of my roadstar, does anyone know if it's a big/ small/imposible job to fix please? The damage is minimal but unsightly.

    I would think they are quite expensive but your getting a 100% complete repair!
    A local bodyshop would throw a bit of mesh behind the hole and fill it with Bog! (better known as car body filler) then blow the panel over!
    It would look nice untill you travel to hot climates where the Alluminium panel has a different expansion temperature to the Bog and things start cracking!

    If the damaged area is small enough you could cover it with a false plastic grill .works well I've done it: Smile:

    All depends on the size and place of the damage. Yes, false plastic grill, GB sticker, Reflectors (pairs at the Rear) The list is lengthy. Or fill and cover with those mentioned.
    How big is the damage?
