Do it yourself Paintless Dent Repair is never a good idea

Let’s look at the reasons not to attempt your own paintless dent repair.  First, you can stretch the metal which can result in locking the dent so that it cannot be repaired.  The untrained person is usually trying to pry the metal while the professional is actually lifting the metal.  This often results in the metal being overstretched.  In addition, there is a real possibility of cracking the paint on your car’s finish.  Once the paint is cracked, the repair will obviously no longer be considered “paintless”.

Do it yourself “tools” for Paintless Dent Repair or Removal

Glue pullers are often sold to the public for do it yourself dent repair.  The problem for the untrained person is knocking down the high spots once you pull out the dent.  The professional understands when to use a glue puller and when it is not recommended.  For example, if the car’s finish is weakened the glue puller will likely pull off paint or the clear coat.  Dry ice is often touted as a repair tool for paintless dent repair but is not used by the professionals in the industry.  Also, stay away from plungers and the tool kits sold to the layman.   Most of the time the attempts result in little high spots that all have to be knocked down.  This ends up causing the repair to cost more for the additional time needed.
