Unhappy Two spots of hail damage on passenger rear quarter panel: how will it affect a wrap?

Hello! So as the title states, I got a bit of hail damage about a year ago and there are two spots that damaged/dented the paint. I'm planning on getting my car wrapped and I was wondering if there's something I could do to fix it? I'd hate for those imperfections to ruin the look I'm after.

Look for a body shop that does Paintless Dent Repair (PDR).

You can do that, or get your own PDR unit off amazon for around $40.
I paid $80 per ding (x4) after an Incident with acorns in my driveway.. Bought a PDR kit on amazon, and have fixed 3 more since. quick and painless.

Hey guys, here's a pic of it. I thought there were two spots but I could only find one. It's started to rust but it's not very deep, but there's definitely a little imprint. Do you still think PDR is the best option?



Edit: So I should elaborate, it's more a chip in the paint that I'm trying to fix, not really a dent. But it was caused by hail/sleet so idk haha

Take your pick: Dr. Colorchip or Langka Paint Chip Repair. Either will work BUT ONLY IF YOU FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER'S INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER. If you don't, it will look like your 5-year old daughter fixed it.

Nice, thank you! Do you have any idea if Dr. Colorchip's paint matches OEM well? I might as well go with them since it includes the touch-up paint already.

There are many colors within the rainbow so does it match perfectly with the color YOU have? I have no idea. I paint my own car so I always have the exact color I need. However, if you are going for perfection, the only choice you have is an advanced solution and if you have never SUCCESSFULLY used touch-up paint, this will be overkill for you. You have to be GOOOOOOD to use this stuff.

As junkman said. i highly recommend Dr Colorchip, its pretty damn good, a little pricey but good. Take a look at all the reviews for it on youtube as well as people showing how to apply. Practice on a less visable spot or a spare part till you get the hang of it.

Get dents repaired first before you wrap your Z. The wrap will make it more noticeable. Most body shops don't offer PDR. They are a "middle man" between customer and PDR techs who work as freelancers.
Best way to find the good PDR guy is by googling. Read the reviews
