Frequent hailstorms and other severe weather can wreak havoc to the body and paint job of your vehicle. When dings and dents occur, it may be tempting to try and fix your vehicle by removing them yourself.

While there are plenty of DIY projects that you should take on around the house and with your vehicle, auto dent removal isn’t one of them. Here’s why:

Paintless-Dent-Repair-BirminghamPeople use all sort of wild methods to try to get dents out of their car, but it usually leads to frustration, damaging the car and even home accidents. Let’s look at the most common DIY auto dent removal methods and why you shouldn’t attempt them.

  • Using a hairdryer. You may be laughing, but people do really try using their hair dryer to pop out dents from the body of their car. This method can ruin both your hair dryer and the paint job of your car. Don’t risk it!
  • Dry ice isn’t just for haunted houses? It really should be, though. Keep the dry ice for your kid’s Halloween party and keep it away from your car! It can also cause damage to your paint job and it can cause permanent damage to your skin if it’s not handled properly.
  • Dent removal kits. You can find dent removal kits online or at your local auto supply store, but they can end up being a waste of time and money. Some kits include glue and other harsh chemicals that can cause damage to your lungs and health. Also, if you don’t apply these kits correctly to the dents on your car, you could end up causing more damage than you had when you started!
