    Nice, http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=25351
    Q- Can i use this Air Duster to remove dents in my car. Apparently if you heat the dent area with a hairdryer then spray with an 'air duster containing carbon dioxide' the dent will come out. Is it possible to use this product? see link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oQpks0ZsUM thanks - N
    Answer- This should be absolutely fine

    Thats from malpins selling it.

    Saw this ages back. Can't help but think it's a little opstimistic that a change in heat like that will have the force to pop a dent. added to that the fact the metal actually stretches when it gets a dent in it (which is why you'll never get a fairly serious dent completely flat again)...

    Something like that, this guy literally threw it into the wing through holes where the door hinges are and turned the engine on. Not sure if its a joke or not lol.

    It does work but just depends on what kind of dent it is.

    Personally I would use your services or similar in the area. Doing something like this without prior experience or knowledge would be too risky for me.
    pro type service (like yours) without question
    Nice pictures and work on the repairs by the way
