Minor Dents And Dings Repair Steps

Fighting the forces of Mother Nature is a never ending battle.  Beaming sun, torrential rains, hail and frigid snows will all do damage to our vehicles.  When the storms are over and calm has returned praying that the storms have done little to no damage to our property is what we have to hold onto.  In some situations we will have damage to our vehicles.

This is a unique one.  The theory is that the difference in temperature between the dry ice and the vehicles dent will cause enough pressure to pop out the dent.  To do this hold the dry ice close to the dent and move it around.  Wear gloves of course but this is all you have to do.  In theory it will pull the dent out of the car.

Park your car in direct sunlight

This has the same principle as the dry ice.  When parking the car in direct sun the heat from the sun will warm up the area of the car allowing the dent to pop.
