    only works on fairly large dents, tried this on a small one and didn't have any luck.

    paintless dent repairs or pdr's as they are known will be the best and cheapest way to have them repaired

    search for people like the dentman in your yellow pages

    Is it on a flat panel? You can get dent pullers, (like a sink plunger) that would pull it out.

    This is the only way I would recommend too. Its also known as Cold Dent repair or Smart Repair too. These guys normally charge between £30 and £50 a panel and represent brilliant value for money.

    As long as the rear of the panel is open then this is the best way to do it. I had one on my back wing fixed like this and it's perfect

    I wouldnt touch it, just let a pro do it, I've seen people try it and it's looked worse and ended up costing more in the long run. Dent devils charge £50 per panel roughly unless you ask for work with out a reciept then it will cost £15 if you remove interior trims before they turn up

    smart repair is a completely different thing, smart repairs involve filler and painting, i know as its part of my job
