Never heard of this before either.

Kind of hard to believe.

Old technique, but in shops they use a torch and water since they are gonna repaint it anyway.

Hi,

Yes, this technique has been around quite a while. Sometimes it works, other time it won't. Depends on the location and extent of the damage. Car Dealerships have used this for a long time to repair Hail storm damage on cars in their lots...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

oh wow, sounds really tedious to do on a dealership scale.

The "Clean Surface" portion of video where the guy wipes the area with his grubby gloves should be titled, "apply swirl marks"

I'll have to try this on a hard to see ding on my car.
