You see, that's why we experts don't like posting on here. Nobody listens or takes us seriously. So this is IT. The ABSOLUTE proof. A VIDEO!!!!!!!! And if you don't accept THAT, then you can just suck on my snowman.

I think it's that first picture of the dog , I'm not 100% , but i just re-read it with the same outcome.
Funny as a mudder forker!!
Maybe the dry ice thing really works on those tuner cars cuase they're made of plastic....
I remember as a kid , if the plastic mag wheel on your huffy warped , you could freeze it and it would straighten out.......
I know a really ugly broad that might could use that dry ice trick , too.
It worked on that other dog , so why not?

DENTS & HAIL DAMAGE
Dry Ice will condense metal and thereby shrink small dents on your car. Place the Dry Ice on the inside of the dent if possible. Use heavy gloves and press flat sheet against dent. If it is not possible to get on the inside concave part of the dent, then using heavy gloves hold the Dry Ice so a corner can fit into the bottom lowest part of the cratered dent. Hold the Dry Ice until the metal is frosted at least 2 inches beyond the dent. Let the metal warm up (in the sun is the best) and repeat the procedure. Sometimes the dent will pop out perfectly. More often it will not be possible to get a flat smooth finish, but the dent will be reduced noticeably. Creased metal will still show the crease line but the dent will be far less pronounced. I have not seen any paint damage, but I'm sure if the paint is not strongly adhered, it could peel away.

I'll do it again using those instructions, I still think it is bull. But I'll try, you know why? Because I would LOVE for it to be true that's why.

Mikey, my kids still mention Smiley everyonce in a while and it has been a year and a half since we were at your shop. He is a neat dog.

That is a cool looking dog, but umm...you need to be more careful when you are mixing paint around him. You got spots all over him the last time.

Brian's results don't surprise me a bit. If it would work, it would be from cooling the metal from a heated condition, causing it to shrink. Years ago, when I was an insurance adjuster, my company car was caught in a hail storm, and had a few dents in it. I called my boss and ask him what I should do, about getting it fixed. He told me to let it sit in the sun and when it was god and hot, apply ice to the dents, and they would pop out.

When I got my next new car, the old one was taken with all of the same dents in it. Not a single one came out that way.

Brian I agree with you ....."bull".... once metal is stretched, forget it.IMO it wont happen,you mentioned a ding or a dent before, what is the difference?
If dry ice worked it would of been thought of before now?We wouldnt need the fellas with the fancy tools probing at the quarters or dings with fancy rods.....Well I hope is does work for you,I'll be watching........good luck

That reminds me of the old vinegar remedies 2001 uses for vinegar.
But then after se'en cboy in action with his dog,anything is possible

Brian,

perhaps heating the dent with a heat gun and then the dry ice.

(dunno, not a body man, so I have no clue )
