Paintless Dent Removal does not work on the hood!?

My car is in service for paintless dent removal and one of the panels involved is the hood. I just received a call from my advisor stating they’re not able to remove the dent on the hood because reinforcements are glued to the hood throughout the entire hood backing and they can’t drill an access hole. The dent is in a place I would think would be readily accessible. With the hood being highly susceptible to hail damage, etc., it seems crazy they’re not able to take care of this! Has anyone ever heard of this before? Thanks.

Bullshit... unless this is something new. Call Park Auto Body/Dent Wizard in Elmwood Park NJ.
The Dent Wizard guy is Gaetano Bruno... he has done a great deal of work for me over the past 10 years. The guy is an artist! 201-796-0116

Tell him Joseph the Chef sent you.

Thanks, Joe.

Thing is I'd really like the dealer to take care of this, as I'm in a loaner, but if they can't / refuse, guess I have no recourse.

Otherwise, I'll be sure to give your guy a buzz.

Thanks again!

He can do it while you wait and will charge you less... believe me you won't be disappointed. He didn't realize that he was legendary among BMW owners in our area until I told him to Google his name !

Got my car back from the dealer and took the following photos; the dent is on the opposite side of the circled area of the second photo. It's definitely more difficult to find/see than before, which is good, but still there (I wasn't able to capture it on camera). Nevertheless, the PDR tech obviously attempted a repair now that I have scratches, as shown. I'm somewhat upset that my service advisor didn't state the tech at least attempted a repair. Anyway, I think it's satisfactory.
