Anyone experimented with glue based dent puller kits? Repco do a kit for around $70 which I'm thinking of experimenting with. Just want to know if they're a waste of money or not.. youtube vids look OK :shock:

I bought one for removing hail damage and it works to some degree,the trick is in the glue that is supplied is not good enough quality so it breaks the bond before the dent is fully pulled, if you go to a good panel beater supplier they will have better quality glue sticks .
if you try doing this on a hot day outside it will not work and same on a cold day, it just seems very critical to have the panels at the correct temp.But when you get the glue to stick properly its a very good method of pulling the dents.

Thanks Dave!

I bought one not long after that posting actually, and yeah, it's OK. Not perfect but OK. Certainly made a couple of the nastier dents much less visible, I don't know whether it'd be possible to get the panel super smooth again but it did a pretty good job.

But yes, it seems very picky about what temperature it is!
