    Default DIY my fender or let the body shop do it?

    A few years ago a dent mysteriously appeared on the drivers side fender of my wife's '04 Burb. The more I do to my '86, the more I hear about the dent I (mysteriously) put in there. It's a good sized one. Probably about 1/4 of the panel....

    Well, I've found some fenders for about $150 primed. Figured I could paint and clear it and make it look halfway decent.

    How do I get the dang thing off though?

    Or should I just bite it and take to a body shop?
    TNT - Texas

    First - '68 longbed (lady runs stop sign, insurance gives me a check)
    Then - '81 SWB (stupid stupid stupid...sold it thinking I was going to get something else)
    Now - Finally got my '86 (350, Holley 600, 700r4)
