Ouch, hail damage!

I was stupid and drove right through the eye of the storm. Hail the size of those big marbles started coming down. Felt like baseballs just slamming into my car.. the damage is pretty bad for an 08 that was flawless, its got a bunch of dimples all over the car.. hard to see but still not happy. I wish i took footage of it, but i was just getting so pissed that it nailed my car and i couldn't do shit

Anyone know a place that car repair the hood and roofs of these little dents? plz pm me or post here. thanks!

heres some pictures.
btw this was in Richmond Hill

thank you Mr. Seville. Just called them up, seems like its possible! might cost a few bucks more cause its a SUV, and over 18 dents easily.

You got lucky... I need to make an insurance claim for mine

Golf Ball sized hail at my home and it cracked one tailight, chipped the other, cracked one mirror, shatter the other, my whole car looks like it was parked on a driving range.

Guess I can't sell it now

when they pull out/repair small dents, sometimes the clear coat cracks.

The Hail today was one of the most spectacular things I had ever seen. The Cayenne was parked outside and I had to run through the insane storm while pellets pelted me in the face and get the car in the garage. Luckily there was no damage that I can see.

Here are some pics of the aftermath in King.
