    I thought a hand car wash was done by topless East Europeans (either sex) with a sponge and bucket of soapy water not with a pressure washer.


    You have to be careful washing cars with pressure washers. Any gaps and it goes inside.

    I wouldn't go anywhere near one of these hand washes.
    I'd have thought any comeback for damage would be zero.

    OP, will the dent "pop out" by hand from inside the tailgate after removing the panel?
