    i have a tiny dime size dent on the back of my truck one the drivers side rear corner over the side of the tail light, i took it to a dent repair shop and they said they start out at dime size for 100 bucks, any way i can get it out, i have a small dent remover kit that i used to pound out a different dent, lol

    Hold dry ice up to the dent, and the cold makes the metal contract, and pop the dent out.

    You can also use a hairdryer (about 45 seconds to a minute blowing on the spot) and then flip an air duster can upside down and spray that on there...

    Same idea as dry ice...Different medium.

    You get a water bottle and put some water in it. like half filled. Then put some dry ice in and quickly screw the cap on and throw. But DONT do it! People have lost hands and fingers. I have done it a lot but i dont like to cuz I have had it explode right after I threw it! :eek:
