  1. @maw8908 – yes – the way to do this right is the replace the whole door. But for 90% of people replacing the door themselves is not easy. Sure a new slab door costs $29 but have you ever tried hauling one home in a Civic (plus you got to haul away the old one)? If you can’t install it yourself your looking at $50 to $80 to have it installed.

    Filling it is an easy DIY for somebody.

  2. @Kalatos – sand it lightly. Use an oil based primer as the paint on the door may be oil or water based – do not use a water based primer (that is if the primer says it can be cleaned up using soap and water then it is water based). They may try to sell you a water based primer and claim it works well over oil based finishes but it will not. After you prime it you can use oil or latex paint.

    1. call of duty doesn’t make me that angry because you can respawn like instantly. In grand theft auto 5 when you get killed its like a black screen for 5 seconds unless you are on the new gen

    2. +Brian Chin lol ikr….. And then im like smashing the x button (i think) trying to respawn getting all mad. 

  3. You can fill the hole in 1 day, dry it with a heat gun in the same morning and then paint the door by the afternoon. It should take 2 days at absolute maximum

  4. Thumbs up for you! (my hubby wanted to change the door, in the house we are restoring, now I know how to tackle the job, will take the advice from a commentor below and use my heat gun )

  5. I was remodeling the bathrooms and damaged the door (4 x 8 inches). I didn’t see this video but did the same thing with plastic filler (should have gone for mud). After a few coats and sanding, painted the door with dark brown (coffee brown) paint. I ended up painting the master bath door as well just to make it uniform. Both doors now look pretty good. I saved some $$ by not changing the doors and saved the environment as well.

  6. Thank you. I have the same color door. What paint color did u use or can I get the list of items that you use including the finish touch (paint). Please n thank you

  7. is there anything else to match it other than primer or paint? maybe vanish would be a good idea after painting

  8. And now your left with a big white patch on your door. Would have preferred the dent, less obvious. Can somebody please upload a useful video on matching the colour after easy repair
