    I noticed I have a lovely new door ding so I did the little googling and found this repair method...

    Hold a hair dryer to the ding for 20 to 30 seconds until it is hot, and spray with an upside-down can of compressed air, covering the area with liquid CO2. The dent should pop out on its own in less than a minute. Wipe the area clean with a soft, clean cloth.

    Anybody know if this actually works? Does it harm the paint at all?

    Sounds like some kind of voo-doo to me. Did you read it from the Nocranomicon?
