Paintless Dent Remover...

Check this out. I'm sure it doesn't work on all dents. But may be good for some.

Seems easier than using dry ice.

I've got to try this!

Someone decided to dance on my front hood a few months back. Left nine dents.

Every body shop immediatly considered the hood destroyed and wanted to replace the hood and repaint the ENTIRE front of the car to match the color. Even though insurance would pick up the costs involved I wasnt happy with needing to have the front of my car repainted for a stinkin' hood.

Anyhow...I set up an appointment with one of these dentbuster places. A reputable one where the owner has worked on other higher end cars with much worse damage than mine and he swears he can make the hood look like nothing ever happened?!? For $500 and him having the car 3 full days I figure why not give it a try.

Do ya think he's gonna use the same technique as shown in the video???

I have a car that just sits in the front of my house that I could try this on. Does anyone know what the stuff in the can is made out of before I try it & ruin the cars paint?

According to the video, "This technique cause any damage to the paint"

I can't see how this does not hurt the paint. Did anyone notice the nasty dent on the right side? Wonder why he didn't do this one at the same time. It looked much worse than the one he did.
