Default Any Ideas?

I would like to see if any of you have any suggestions for getting out or hiding small dinks and dents in the truck. I have a white truck, so a must times the dinks are hard to see anyways, but just curious if you guys had any ideas. Thanks!

I'm not sure how you would hide a dent... it's either there or it isn't... maybe keep the truck dirty?? lol

I would have to drive mine in a mudhole and leave it there to cover all my exterior imperfections!

if its not to big of a dent try heating it up with a blow dryer and then putting a chunk of ice on it as soon as its heated up sometimes ive seen that pop out dents the size of a nickle before

A variation on the above repair is to use a can of compressed air for cleaning electronics.

Heat the area being worked with a hair dryer, hold a air duster can upside down, and spray the area until it frosts over. After the frost goes away, wipe it down with a soft cloth.

If the dent is going to pop out, it will do it as the area is warming back up again.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I would prefer not to keep my truck covered in mud and yes a dent is a dent. As for the last two suggestions, I might have to try that. I have a couple dents that are about the size of a nickel. I would assume this technique with the air can wouldn't damage the paint. Anyways, thanks for the feedback, and if anyone has any other suggestions besides expensive body work let me know. Thanks again.
Ben
