I saw this U-Tube video posted on another forum and wondered if it works, esepcially on small door dings.

It sure would be great if it works. If anyone tries or has tried it, please post results here.

its almost 3am but I was bored so i went outside and dented my cadillac (pressed in a small portion of the front door panel with the ball of my hand) and gave the process a try. I used a heat gun instead of a blow dryer because its a lil quieter and a lot hotter. The dent is still there and I just wasted two cans of perfectly good air duster. It kinda popped out half way but just looks weirder now.

Tried it on a small ding in the roof of my baby Lexus...didn't work. According to the theory it only works on large dents. It's the ratio of metal thickness to surface area that is critical and also what's behind the dent as insulation material or stiffeners may also stop this working.
