Apparently it works with those canisters of Keyboard Duster that you get from Dixons etc, you know the things that look like WD40 with the same sort of long tube for spraying, just give it a few shakes and make sure you spray the area whilst holding the can upside down. 8-|

I know what you mean Gibbscp but there is another video on youtube somewhere showing it being done.

I will try and find it.

Technically speaking however, in theory, like in the video, if you heat up the area with a hairdryer or heat gun and then apply a large lump of ice to it the metal should contract and pull itself out anyway, I'm sure the bags of ice you can buy from the supermarket would work?

just throught id add this i used a spray can to cool chips that didn't have the heat sink on / bolted to a chassis

especial for the amps I made and this stuff would probably do the same job

Ive got a heap of those cans at work, i might try n get one and give it a go on my car, but i cant imagine it working as its just blowing compressed air and it wont be that cold.

Apparently it all counts on holding the can upside down when spraying, it has something to do with whats used in the can to keep it compressed or something like that! :D

Something like this, although it didnt work for him...

i'm sure you'd need to heat the area for at least five minutes, i would recommend a hairdryer as i'd imagine a heat gun would be too hot and bubble the paint.

[quote="Civic_Vtec":qhk7ilgq]I had a go, i didnt heat the panel first or anything. It just blew ice over the area and dizzolved. The dents remain.

what ice did you use? Dry ice? or regular ice?[/quote:qhk7ilgq]

I used the airduct stuff from my old office. When you spray it for longer than about 10 seconds it freezes the can.

I've got a fist-sized dent on my tailgate/boot just to the side of the number plate. I've never tried to pop out a dent before, but would you reckon it's worth trying to push it through from the inside (removing the interior of the boot/tailgate first)?

It's an '04 Civic Sport...
