5 Solutions for Car Dent Repair You Can Do at Home
Have you ever seen a car with one or more dents in it and wondered if you could repair it yourself? With the following tips and tricks, you'll be able to do car dent repair in no time.
Use a Hair Dryer to Heat Up the Paint
A hairdryer is a great tool for heating up the paint and removing dents. The trick is to not get too close to the car's surface, or else you'll damage it. Other than that, if you use enough heat and keep moving the dryer around on different sides of each dent (while applying pressure), then your dents should pop out easily.
To ensure this happens properly, you need to heat up your car's surface with a blow dryer until it begins to bubble slightly around each dent; then let it cool down before repeating this process again until all of your dents are gone.
Use a Hair Dryer to De-Scratch the Paint
A hairdryer is one of the best tools for removing scratches in car paint. It can soften up the paint, making it easier to remove and repair. If you have access to a heat gun, that's even better because it will get hotter than a regular hair dryer (but make sure not to go overboard). With either tool, simply hold it at least six inches away from your car's surface and slowly move it back and forth over each scratch until it disappears. The longer you hold down on an area with heat, the deeper into the metal/paint will penetrate and thus make more damage visible when finished.
Once done with this step (or if there aren't any scratches), wipe off any excess moisture left behind by using either some old rags or paper towels dipped into warm water mixed with dish soap - this should loosen up any remaining dirt stuck within crevices which may have been missed earlier.
Use Super Glue to Fill in Dents
If you have a small dent in your car, super glue may be an option for repairing it. The trick to using this method is that you need to fill the dent with a small amount of super glue and let it dry before driving.
The reason why it works so well is that the molecules in superglue are very strong and will bond with metal or plastic easily.
However, there are some things that you should keep in mind when using this method. You should only use a small amount of glue on each side of your dent because too much can cause damage or stickiness when driving again. Also, make sure that whatever part has been filled with super glue isn't touching any plastic or rubber parts (like seat belts).
Use an Ice Cube and a Credit Card to Remove Small Dents
To get rid of a small dent, use an ice cube and a credit card to apply pressure to the damaged area. The ice cube will freeze the area and make it easier to remove.
You can try placing the credit card on top of the dent and pressing down firmly until you feel that you have made contact with both sides of it; this should take about 30 seconds depending on how deep your dent is. Then, carefully remove your tool from inside the car (you may want someone else's help) then use another method like rubbing alcohol or WD-40.
Use a Car Wax to Remove Residual Dents
If you're looking for a DIY solution, you can try using car wax to remove the residual dent. First, apply the wax with a soft cloth and let it dry for a few minutes. Then use an orbital buffer or rotary polisher to buff out the wax residue from your car's paint surface. Repeat this process until all of your dents have disappeared.
If you want to avoid paying a professional to fix your dents, then you should consider the options we've covered here. If the dent is small enough, it might be easier than you think.
