Hi Mark,
good work on those vids by the way, I tried this methon on a smalll dent in the bonnet and a larger dent on the passenger side door and found it didn't make much difference (if any at all) to the dent.
I made sure I had put plenty of heat before spraying the "stuff" but it didn't do much.
May work on some thin panels on cheap cars that are easily manipulated but not on the Cruiser.

Aah... yeah. I think there's a bit of a difference in between the amount of metal in a LC's panel and a Hyunday Excel's.

Mind you - one could always try a larger hammer (pun not intended). But where do you go from here? Hair dryer -> industrial flame-thrower? and CO2 receptacle -> liquid nitrogen?

Hmm... it will be fun to try to explain that to the fire brigade: "you see, I read this thing on the internets, and I thought...."

Ino!~

PS: Do not try to "upgrade" your hammer :)

Hi Mark
Ah yes interesting Chinese method...'kissing' as they call it is pretty common and can usually be solved like this if it is not too bad....however have to agree that metal comparison between Geely/other chinese brands and heavy duty products is vastly different! However worth a try...I live with there for many months a year and yes 'clever chinese' is a correct term!!!!!
According to modern astronomers, space is finite..a very comforting thought particularly for people who can never remember where they left things

I have had success removing carpark dents by accessing the inside of the panel and placing a plastic/soft timber dolly on the outside and massaging the inside of the crease/dent with the convex end of a wooden spoon, just did one on the friont guard of the wifes new FG Falcon, you can't see where it was.

Didn't work for me on the Patrol Mark, so I also tried the more effective one from that post the previous week , in which they used dry ice to really get things cold.

Lotta fun , but it didn't work for me also.

So where do we get spray paks of CO2? Just in case I need to reconstruct the car one day after an oldtimers moment.
