    So some friends of friends of mine decided to sit on my f****** roof the other day and dented it to hell and back. I was able to get most of them out with a plunger but theres still a few towards the back that I can't get out. I think if I can get the interior roof lining in the car out around the back are then I can get my hand in there and push it up and pop the dents out. Does anybody have any idea of how to get the hooks (for clothes) off so I can reach my hand up an there. Or does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks guys

    My friends decided to dance on the roof of my old bronco once. Good thing the roof over the cab was already completely dented and the rear part was thick plastic so I didn't care lol. I would punch them in the face if they tried to get on the roof of my tacoma.

    Try getting the headliner out and poping them out like you said.

    Oh and
