Heat it up with the hair dryer then spray a can of compressed air upside down on it. The sudden change in temp from hot to cold sometimes will constrict the metal and the dent will "pop" itself out.

Sometimes.


YouTube has a ton of vids showing people that have done it.

I have 7 little random ass dents on my truck. Looks like previous owner stood next to it and shot it with a BB gun. May look into this.

That's crazy. I had no idea that would work. BRB, going to hit Jared's truck with a baseball bat so I can try it.

Ask and see if the place you were at has security cameras? i dont know if the hair dryer and compressed air will work because it looks like its creased

hahaha he did paint my bumpers did decent i gotta do somemore stuff to ole bruce... i need to get my paint corrected bad but dont know how

go spend a grand at adamspolishes.com. thats how :crossarms:


hair dryer and compressed air wont work on that dent so dont even bother trying.
the best thing you could do is try to body hammer it out with the door panel off and do some touch up paint on it and try to burn the touch up paint into the normal paint.otherwise save and take it to a body shop
