Dent Repair Before and After
 

 
I have an 2007 Impala LTZ and yesterday I backed up into a pole with a metal beam out the center. I didnt even see fu-king thing, I was worried about not hitting a brand new BMW. Anyway, When I heard the crunch I pulled up and turned my car off. I almost fell the ground when I saw the huge Dent on drivers side bumper. I cracked my taillight as well, pieces of light on the ground.

I knew it would cost a grip if I went to the auto body shop, so I started looking online on how to remove dents yourself and I seen a bunch of videos with people using a blow dryer and a heat gun to heat up the bumper plastic and mold it back into place.

It was worth a shot, since Im broke and I just got the car in May. So My wife and I started the process. I first removed the Taillights (3 plastic srews inside the trunk) and unpluged them. Next, my wife took the heat gun and started heating up the bumper for about 1min.

I then put my hand inside the bumper and began pushing the material outward with the heat gun still on the bumper. It got really hot so I had to put on a golf glove. After 15 minutes of pushing, the dent popped out. I took a cold rag and wiped the bumper so the material with harden.image

It was a very easy process and it saved me $$$$$, fu-k a BodyShop. Looks better then it did:imageimage:whoa3::

I work in a shop. This is exactly what we do before we start the body work (if the bumper is repairable) Ive done it plenty of times for free for repeat customers, or even just as a favour to people who are nice enough. A lot of people share your "fu*k a body shop" attitude and I don't blame any of you. A lot of shops will bullsh*t you and either charge you up the a.ss, or give a cheap price and do a sh*tty job. There are good ones though. Anyway good job brother, theres a lot people can do with just a little research.
Appreicate my man, I was happy I didnt have to spend a buck. It still has a little dent and mark from the pole, but you can barely tell.

I gotta remember this for next time, tried to pop a dent out of my quarter panel in the cold without knowing I could use a heat gun and I got some small creases.

You think theres a way to get the crease out or is the damage already done?

I've got some hail damage on the hood of my wife's car, thinking about turning it in on insurance but is there anything I can do for that? They're really small dents.

Turn it in to insurance. You'll have to pay your comp. Deductible, probably 300. If you can see the dents with the nekkid eye. Once the hail techs put there lights on the vehicle there will be slot more. I'm an appraiser for a local shop. And we just had a recent hail storm here. The average price is between 2300 and 4700. Lots of customers don't even know there is damage unfilled they come by for a free estimate, also worth a shop to see if your local bodyshop or PDR (paintless dent repair) tech can work your deductible into the quote. :)

good sh*t dude

a lil trick i learned is....say u bump up against the side of your garage or another car & u get a lil paint from either on your car.....put some alcohol on a microfiber towel and 9 times outta 10 the paint mark from the garage/other car will come off and be good as new....
