Alright, so you just bought the “As seen on TV Pops-a-dent” or the Ding King “Twist a dent” and have tried using it. You may have even removed the damage a little bit, but usually, the repair results are less than respectable. How can we achieve better results? Allow me to disclose some wonderful information about how to use a dent puller kit you purchased more effectively.
This is supplemental information to be used while following the steps provided in the kit.
1. Plug in the glue gun and put a stick of glue in it.
2. Identify the impact area of the dent.
3. Look for high ridges, or “frowns”.
4. If there are any frowns or high ridges you need to gently tap them down by moving around the higher area, tapping consistently.
5. Once you have reduced the high areas, then you can address the low area (dent).
6. Use the solution provided along with a soft cloth (diaper rag, retailer’s towel) rub the damaged area you plan to glue until you feel the rag “grab” a little. The wax should be gone now.
7. Apply glue to the tab (careful hot!) and apply to damage (start in the impact area).
8. Set up dent puller.
9. Check whether the glue has set by touching the exposed glue that has squished out the side of the tab. If it is no longer sticking to your finger, but is just tacky it is ready.
10. Use the dent puller.
11. Use solution to remove excess glue.
12. Tap down any high areas you may have caused.
13. Continue this process until dent has been removed.
This is pretty much the same process I use with an industry specific kit I use on a daily basis. I would guesstimate I use my glue dent puller on a third of the cars I work on daily.
