Best Item I've ever bought!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ding King Car Dent Repair Kit (596) Dent Repair Tool, no more costly dent repairs. (Misc.)
I pulled 2 dents in my roof roof panel above the door that Dent Master said were impossible to remove and a friend who works as an assessor for a well know Insurance Company also said was impossible. They're now both barely visible (only at the right angle in the right light), reduced from a 50p sized (elbow bone sized) imprint that was fairly deep.
The Ding King removed them both!!
Those people who have problems do so in my opinion simply because they fail to clean the car properly before using the Ding King. With a clean surface the adhesion is very strong.
When I received mine the green cleaning liquid had eveaporated so I used t-cut and isopropoyl acohol to clean the car instead. This may be the way to go.
Ding King IS brilliant, you just have to make sure you clean everything properly 1st. Thas where most people fail.
Start off by forgetting the green solution. Instead clean the dent with T-cut and the plastic pulling end with Isopropyl Alcohol. This will now ensure the glue sticks properly, to both surfaces. The most common complaint with Ding King is that the glue doesn't stick - its entirely down to surface prep. If they're not clean and grease free then the glue will seperate off each respective surface very easily and not pull the dent.
Apply the glue to the plastic end then straight to the centre of the dent and make sure you hold it there with pressure for several minutes until its had time to set. Allow sufficient time. Another mistake is to pull before the glue's had time to set properly.
Then pull the ding. You should find with the cleaned paintwork the glue will stick much better than before and the dent will pull - it may take several attempts to get it out though.
AN ALTERNAIVE SUPER STRENGTH METHOD (READ WARNINGS BEFORE USING AS ITS AT YOUR RISK)- way to increase the grip further is to warm the plastic end with the hot air gun before applying it to pre-warmed paintwork (also warmed with the hot air gun - warm the paintwork 1st then the plastic pulling end). THEN HOLD TIGHT ONTO THE PAINTWORK AND ALLOW TO SET. This usually results in a VERY STRONG BOND, many times stronger than before and with the plastic end pulling off but leaving the glue behind.
NOTE HERE: the bond is so strong that any paint defect may result in seperation of the paint from the car! So use with caution! THIS IS ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK AS THE BOND CREATED IS VERY STRONG INDEED USING THIS METHOD.Its more than capable of flexing the whole of a pre-stressed thick metal panel, so again you have been warned. It worked well for me but is capable of pulling paint if the paint is not strongly adhered. Again I stress its at your own risk.
You may find the glue using this super method, is left behind on the paint and is now very difficult to peal off. The way to overcome this is to heat the residue SLIGHTLY with the hot air gun, you don't want to melt it, just warm it slightly to soften it. A second or twos heat is all thats needed. It should now peal from the edge using a finger nail. However, even after this, there will still be a residue film left on the car though with this super strength method. I found that this will T cut off quite easily with just a light wipe(you won't get it off any other way!).
You should find that with several pulls you can pull the dent out entirely minus any metal deformation (stretching) which is irreversible.
