    I recently noticed a small dent on my bonnet, you carn't see it from close up and you carnt feel the dent, but when light shines on it or you look at a side, from an angle, or far away you can see the dent, it has no paint chips, does anyone know the best way to remove this?
    as it looks very eye catching

    Get dentwizards or similar to do their magic, probably cost about £40-50 but well worth it. Don't whatever you do try and do it yourself, it truly is a skill!

    Would you really want to try it on your Audi?! If I had a Ford Escort or an old honda maybe, as the metal is thinner, doubt it would work on a VAG panel.

    Much better than risking pushing it out from behind.

    Like I said, in principle it should, but whether the contraction will be strong enough to actually pull a dent...

    You can do this with alot of substrates, cant see why it would not work with metals....

    When I get hold of a can of spray and the weather get better guys... I need to warn you guys though, the dent in the bonnet is near the front where it curves downwards, so it may not work, but I'd like to see it flexing for real to see how it works. :)
