Question Poping Out Dent?

Hey everyone, the other day a freaken big tree branch fell on the trunk of my civic and it left a dent, probably about the same size of a quarter, on the rear quarter panel right next to the rear window. I tried poping off the panel on the inside to see if I could pop it out from the inside, but there is another piece of metal ontop of the exterior panel, so I can't get to the dent from there. I tried the hairdryer-ice thing to see if I could pop it out, didn't work either. I was wondering if I used hot glue and glued something in the middle of the dent to pop it out, if that would work? Or do I just need to take it to dent wizard or something?

Go to Autozone or to a tile Store and they sell suction cups like for $5 (USD). These are used to move tile. At the autoparts they are in the paint section. Get one of those and put some water on the car and some on the cup and pull the he11 out.

Hope it helps.

I've heard the Ding King works good for small dings/dents. I noticed 2 dings on the hood of my car today at the beach so I went to Canadian Tire and bought the Ding King kit. It was on the local news awhile back, and they recommended it for little dings/dents. I hope it works.

I'm assuming that you have a big dent on your car. Same happened to me on my old car but in the fender. A friend of mine that worked at a shop told me about it. It took most of it out but there was a dent by the headlight that I wasn't able to take out. The only way to take it out was by taking the fender off and hammering it out cause the metal was completely bent.

This is like the Ding King but it cost less and you have to pull.
