    paintless dent removal tools?

    Well a neighbor just backed into my minivan. Now if I get this door really repaired properly I am going to have to do something about the rest of the sorry looking paint job. Any experience with the "paintless dent removal tools"? There seem to be 3 basic types, a slide hammer, a sort of screw thing with a bridge and some sort of mechanical contraption with a lever.
    Any experience with these? there are no creases so it seems like it might be worth a try to get it back near to its prior state.

    Probaebly easier to bring it to a PDR person near you than buying and learning how to use the tools. They work pretty inexpensively and know just how to use the tools.

    Those PDR guys can do amazing things. Got some hood damage on our Chevrolet Impala fixed a few years ago. A piece of truck tire was thrown up and hit the hood. After about an hour you could not see any evidence of the damage.
    Seems they spend most of their time at dealerships getting out little dings.

    I agree with others. Hiring a professional PDR guy is your best option.

    Well since the closest person really advertising as "PDR" is probably several thousand miles away I probably won't do that I guess I will have to go around to a few more places and see what they can (or are willing to do)

    You can buy kits really inexpensively on Amazon - and youtube is your friend here. Why not buy a kit and try yourself? You really have nothing to lose. If it doesn't work you are out $50 - if it does work you have a new skill. Go for it!
