    do you think it would work on stuff like this? or should i just hit up the rubber mallet? and how do you do it?

    how long and use the heat gun on the insideor outside of the car?

    all those panels are accessable from the inside i think :big grin:

    its gotta be hot outside. ive tried it before, but i couldn't get it to work right. i think i know why though. after i had the dry ice on there awhile i would wipe off the white stuff its leaves behind and i think i was supposed to let the sun get that and pull it out. what you do is get dry ice and put a towel around the top so you can hold it. then hold it on the dent for about 1 minute and then take it off and let some hot sun hit it and it should work i think.

    Well, it doesn't really need to be hot out. That's what the heat gun is for. :big grin:

    I wouldn't count on it working very well. Dry ice really only works on mild hail damage. You'd probably have better luck pulling off the inner panel and slowly pushing them out by hand. Probably won't be perfect though.

    BTW, go to www.xat.com and download the image optimizer. You could probably get those pics down to 40 k with no loss in resolution or quality...remember the forum mod (moi) has dial up with no options for anything faster. ;)

    :eek: Someone told me Road Runner is readily available in Texas. Was that incorrect?
