Pop out your door dings easily!

Saw a video of this being done awhile back, and after seeing it I was impressed. The basic of it you heat up the metal around the door ding with a heatgun or blowdryer, and once you get the metal heated up hot enough, you quench it down with some liquid CO2 straight out of an air duster. Hold the can upside down and keep spraying until the whole area is covered in frost and keep going a few extra seconds for good measure.

The liquid CO2 does zero damage to paint, and it evaporates off in minutes, leaving a small amount of condensation for you to wipe off.

Try it out! I did and it got rid of every one of my door dings except two were the metal was actually creased in.

Re: Pop out your door dings easily!

with a dent that big and dull with no creases you can push it out from the inside...as long as you can reach it..

Re: Pop out your door dings easily!

You guys definately have to try it out. I was definately skeptical at first, but I got rearended at a stoplight awhile back and it put a pretty big dent in my bumper. I figured I'd test it out on the bumper since I'll be going for a rollpan soon, and it didn't damage the paint at all.

After seeing it didn't damage the paint I went around to the 6 door dings I had and it popped em all out. The only thing I've noticed is that if the dent is creased at all it normally won't work.

But hell, 5$ for a can and theres a pretty good chance it'll pop out most of the dings without any damage. Try it!

Re: Pop out your door dings easily!

It should work if it is a simple dent with no creases.

Re: Pop out your door dings easily!

Or how about the one where if you have a spare remote at home for your alarm. You call home. Have someone push your unlock button while you hold the phone next to the truck. Hahaha. I might try this. Ive got a few door dings.

Re: Pop out your door dings easily!

The only possible damage occuring I see is heating it up to much. This should work on dents from little bumps etc. Makes the metal a little softer then the cooling pulls the metal back together where the bump streatched it out a little. I saw them do this in the auto body shop. I saw someone use one of those "Ding kings" to, and it actually works on the dents that are not creased at all, and hurts like hell if you stick it on your chest and have someone turn the suction on and pull, cool noise though.

If it's possible to pop the dent by taking the door paneling off, this method should work, and save the time of stripping the door just to give it a little tap from the inside.

I'd like to see what it really looks like. maybe the majority of the dent is gone but I bet it's no where near straight.

Its a joke, that is why they are all running their heads about it. How on earth could a rush of air push up the pins and twist all at the same time, my key has a good deal of resistance to it.

And the idea this thread gives makes decent logical sense, we heard something similar in my engineering materials class.

Re: Pop out your door dings easily!

You can also buy a can of "Freeze It" at an electronics store. Its the same priniple as the compressed air, but its a whole can of nothing but that stuff, and you dont have to turn it upside down. Some super cold shit.

Re: Pop out your door dings easily!

I am sure you would have to be in a spot with little wind, and you would have to leave the heat on it for a long time to get the metal hot enough.
