4.0 out of 5 stars It works - but a few bits of advice, 7 July 2010

This review is from: Ding King Car Dent Repair Kit (596) Dent Repair Tool, no more costly dent repairs. (Misc.)
I was looking for a product to pull out a crease in my car and having tried unsuccessfully with a suction dent puller thought I would give this a go. Having read mixed reviews for this product I did not hold my hopes very high but thought it was worth a go.

The kit was delivered quickly with good instructions. I followed the instructions to the letter and managed to pull out a 6 inch crease from my car; the results are by no means like new or to a body shop standard but the crease has reduced and is less noticeable.

I prepared the car and puller surface using the supplied solution and allowed it to dry. Then after 5 minutes of heating the glue applied it to the puller, then stuck it to the middle of the crease, pushing firmly for 60 seconds. After 5 minutes I connected the pulling device and tightened the wing nut, the glue held fully and did not come off allowing the crease to be pulled. When I had done I had to rock the puller to get it off of the car, this left some glue on the bodywork. I repeated this 3 times and managed to pull most of the crease out, although as said above it's not totally invisible. It's probably more suited to round dents.

The hard part for me was removing the glue from the car body. The kit comes with a scraper which I used but found this not very good. In the end I poured hot water over the glue and used the scraper to remove the large bits. If you scrape too much the glue will smear in to a thin coating on the body of the car - After some trial and error this thin coating can be removed with nail polish remover rubbed in hard with a cotton cloth, with some elbow grease the glue was totally removed. If you follow this advice be sure that the nail polish remover will not damage your car paint before using - saying that is was fine on mine.

In between applications the glue can stick to the puller, again I used hot water to soften and remove this. If you don't the puller surface will not be even and will therefore not grip as well.

This kit is worth buying but be prepared to put some work in cleaning your car afterwards.
