Turn it into your insurance company. Most hail damage will repair itself. The heat of the sun will do most of it. Another trick I "heard" of was to let the sun get it really hot and then drop an ice cube in the dent. It will cause the dent to raise.

Thats what I was told but it has been two years and nothing like that has happen yet . I'll try the Ice cube thing. The insurance company only gave me about $1000 for everything to be fixed that also that would be for about 25+ dents and a new front window. Almost all the money had gone to the front window. I Only have about $300 left and been going around trying to find a place that will give me a good price but most of them are $1000+

"dent" is Latin for "tooth". Being the geek I am I first read the title of this thread as someone looking for a do-it-yourself dentist kit.

Gun Fan has it just about right... You can use a heat gun (be carefull) or the sun to heat up the metal, then use dry ice to pop the dents. I'd try it in an inconspicous spot first, just in case. -Jared

This is flimsy but I heard of a relatively new franchise that takes dings+dents out,like shopping carriage dents an door dings + stuff.I do not recall its name,maybe you could get a package deal.Maybe someone that reads this knows the name?[?]

I've seen very good work from a company that frequents the dealership where I work called Dentwizard. They come to the site and caress and coax dents out. Most of the time with no paint damage. Find them online at www.dentwiz.com

That would have been a great place but the nearest one to me is over 2 hours away. They have good prices also.
