Repairing cuts and dents on a series 4

The theres a small crescent moon sized dent on the body of my car. Its about 3 inches long and tears on inward a bit. but it didnt break off, its just a jagged hairline rip. Is there any way I can stretch the body back and just adhesive it up?

Nope... Cut it out and replace the (hopefully) small section of metal that was ripped.... including a few inches all around. Metal stretches when it's ripped, and there's no shrinking it back.... Not with heat or ice or anything - not with ripped holes and all - and the jagged half moon thing - even with no holes - it was almost a hole and ytou need to rplace the metal.

If you're like me and don't have money yet for a body-man, buy a bottle of "rust-eater-gel" or just aything that says Phosphoric Acid on the label. Brush some on, let it sit for awhile and then wipe off and prime the area.

One less rusted Alfa is a saved Alfa!
