Fix or get different bed?

Not sure if the dents in my bed are worth fixing or just getting a different bed in better shape. The # 3 in the image doesn't look as bad in the pic but the dent is deeper than what it appears at the very rear before it gets to the corner. If its worth keeping whats a good guesstimate on what it would cost to have fixed/repaired? The passenger side is in pretty good shape.

Re: Fix or get different bed?

that could be easily fixed by a decent bodyman...as far as cost I wouldn't try to guess what someone will charge...go get some estimates...finding a better undamaged bedside might be a chore. .

Could be fixed without to much work for someone who knows how. Like said about a bed side that year might be hard to find.

Re: Fix or get different bed?

You'll likely pay more to have a bodyman replace the bedside than it would take to repair those dents. Have you considered a paintless dent repair? They can do miracles.
