    How big is it and is it creased? I've seen my dad pull a few dents out with a bathroom plunger. Might sound crazy but I've seen him do it.

    use dry ice in a towel... make sure the towel won't scratch the paint and just slowly rub over the dent with it... it should pop it self out eventually...

    yeah i think my dad bought one of those to use it on our daewoo a couple years back after i put a dent in it. ill have to scrounge through the garage to see if we still have it. the dent itself is kinda big but its shallow i guess.

    My son was just outside the garage last winter waiting to ambush me with a snowball. He threw it and I jumped back and it hit the GTO! No big deal, right? Well, it was a chunk of frozen snow and it put a small dent in the rear fender. I went to see my neighbor who ownes a body shop. He looked at the dent and said no problem - Dent Wizard will fix that. Dent Wizard is a company that specializes in small dent repair. And they are wizards because I could not find where the dent had been. They are not cheap - cost me about $100 - but it was well worth it to me.

    yeah i might have to just take it to a body shop, its dented in like the worst spot ever to try to suction it out. or maybe i can use this as an excuse to get a body kit + maybe ultra z hood and have the body shop deal with the dent while they put everything on
