I removed a dent in my back door quicker than that, took 3 seconds.

Someone had dented it parking next to me in a car park luckily their bumper had pushed the door in by pushing on the large plastic rubbing strip that my Scorpio had.

I was so mad that after looking around I opened the door and slammed it shut, the large dent sprang out and completely disappeared.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

I saw this a few weeks ago - but didn't want to post it in case people thought this was another technique I use...

I can understand the principle involved, but I would believe that success is dependent on the type of dent.

Let me explain, the principle is one of expansion/contraction of metal - this 'force' will apply itself equally in all directions on the metal in the panel from the centre of the dent outwards. Now that's fine if the dent is in itself uniform in nature (i.e. a panel which has been kicked, or something large/heavy has applied force to it), however, if the dent was created by something long/flat (i.e. a door edge/wall) then the dent may be reversed and become a high spot on the panel or the paint may crack under the force which has been created within the panel.

Its certainly entertaining to watch!


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
