what YOU DO IS TAKE A SMALL BU -TAINE TORCH AND YOU GET SO YOU CAN SITE DOWN THE PANEL YOUR WORKING ON SO YOU CAN SEE THE HAIL DENT AS IT STARTS TO COME UP. Now you slowly warm the area around the dent with the torch working from around the hail dent intoward the middle of it. Dont get the panel to warm and if it starts to go down instead of up get off it with the heat. You should see the hail dent come to where it looks perfect now real fast hit it with a cold rag dipped in water or with ice in it. The panel should lock right there.Ive done hood and roofs this way. I did and old ford taurus hood this way. It was sliver and I couldn't get a couple to come up or we wouldn't have even had to paint the hood. If you get good at it you wont even burn the paint.Find and old hood or trunk lid take a marble in a sock and put some dents in it and practice untill you get the hang of it. Once straight you can do it over and over untill it comes easy to you. When you do it's way faster than filling with mud and blocking straight.
