like an idiot, i set my torx bits on my roof (so i thought) turns out i set it on part that lifts with the hatch.. so (taking out my 3rd brake light) i pop the hatch, the bits slide down into the opening crevice, and get jammed in there, the hatch pushes itself up and wha-la, that's how you dint up your roof.. take notes so y'all know how its done, so u don't do it.. now since i explained how you do this part, does anyone know how to do the part that reverses it? I've done some Auto body work, but that was back in highschool.. anybody know any cool tricks like compressed air to freeze it or something? idk what to do

You can probably use one of those dent removal tools that you can find at harbor freight. I think its like 15 dollars. I can't relly see how deep it is there is a lot of glare. If anything it will not be as noticable

I actually have a similar lil ding right in the center of my hatch too, but I didn't drop any torx buts I can't figure out where it came from. And I don't know if it was there before or after I did my riser install, all I know is I never dropped any screws or bits during install so I know it wasnt from that, I thought maybe it had been the antenna but it seems way to soft to create a lil indent like that.

I don't know how to do it myself, but you might want to try a paintless dent removal place. They can do some amazing work and they're usually reasonable. It's cheaper if you have them do more than one dent.

I have a new ding nearly identical to that one, but a foot rear of yours (on the wing). A friend of mine who is a genius with PDR says that he cannot perform his magic on plastic, so unless he is wrong, my dent will be there until I find a replacement wing (anyone have a 100% perfect Shadow Black wing FS??)
