    Default dents !

    Anyone recommend the best course of action on these problems ? hope you can make them out on the photos.

    The first one on the top of car was due to me kneeling on it as i cleaned roof, silly i know.
    The second was due to a silly billy hitting door at the old asda on fri, wife didnt notice it, (they never usally do) but as i was walking up the drive i spotted the creases straight away. The usual theres nothing there from the misses doesnt help !!

    Any ideas please guys. The paints not damaged apart from scratches that i think will polish out.

    The one on the roof, heat it until quite warm 'not too hot to bubble or melt the paint!' with a hair dryer, then spray some freeze spray (Maplins) on it. and watch the dent 'pop' out.

    P.S. Why were you kneeling on your roof???

    i tried that yesterday with some pipe freezing spray i use at work with no results, might try some maplins spray then just for the sake of it !

    i was stood on the fence at the side of the car cleaning the roof and i guess i must of kneeled on it for some extra stableisation

    OK. Watch him like a hawk and let us know how he removes them! He may even use the heat gun / freezer spray trick...
