    You can see on the right side of the dent where the paint is completely rubbed off a bit, you can see the metal, as well as below the dent and to the left a bit. Any recomendation on what I could put on it and then wax over it or something? And any rough estimate on how much that dent will probably cost me to get out?

    And think it'd make it worse if I tried a plunger?

    Nothing you can do when there is no paint to work with. Probably run you around $500 at a good body shop to remove the dent, repaint the panel and blend in the paint.

    What about the dent alone? I really can't afford that atm :(

    Put the car in the sun, let the paint get hot. Go from behind the dent and "rub" it out with something, or go get a rubber mallet and a blanket and work it out from behind.

    Its hard to do, but try it first!

    I don't think I can get behind the dent without taking the fender off.

    One more question though- Where the paint is chipped, the edges of it could probably chip more if I washed it or something. Is there any kind of sealant or something so I could make sure it won't chip anymore?
