    Default Indeneted crease on boot, how to remove?

    Folks,

    Some tw@t decided to put a crease in the rear boot lid yesterday.

    The dent/crease just above the griffen badge, about one and half inches long but only slightly indented by a few mm. Looking straight on the damage is not visible but side on it can be seen.

    Not sure what caused the damage as the car has been sat in the drive way all week and certainly was not their on Wednesday evening when i washed her.

    Any way, would one of these be able to pull out the damage?

    If not what would you suggest?

    If the cup on the puller is big enough to cover the dent (and the dent is not to 'sharp') it should pull it out.
    Warm up the body of the car first (gentle heat) so that when it pulls it will not crease the paint.
    It may not pull it out if it is a sharp (or quick dent) but for the general 'push' dents they are ok.
    Good luck.
