Watch the video(s). I'll be trying this on my Escalade shortly. When I do, I'll report back with the results. In the meantime, if you have any dings you'd like to remove, give these simple techniques a shot...

Let us know what the hair dryer and air duster method does to the paint. I don't trust it, and I just did the three step compound, polish, wax. I may try the dry ice though...

I tried the dry ice method and it didn't work. My Seville has three very small dents on the fenders, and my wifes 3 series has a small dent on the door. I tried all four dents and neither has changed a bit. Plus after leaving the dry ice on the sheet metal, and pulling it away, the metal wasn't even cold. Don't know what to make of that. Maybe I'll try again in the summer.

Yeah you cant do it when its cold. The flex comes from the rapid change in temperatures so the metal has to be warm or room temp then cooled rapidly by the dry ice.

I tried the dry ice method on a 2 week old '65 Mustang. Hail dents, no comp. insurance. Let it heat in the sun then apply the dry ice. Tried and tried, didn't work. By the time I sold it the sun pulled most of them out. It took about five years.:crying:
Sal dented his Escalade! How could you???
A friend who does body work said it can work, but not when it gets close to a seam or bend in the metal.
