Dan Schwarzkopf: My name is Dan Schwarzkopf. I work at 5 Seasons Auto Rebuilders in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and name of this video is 'How to remove dents from your car without damaging your paint.

' In this section we are going to show you how to remove dents from your car using the method of dry ice. First, you also want to get yourself a towel, so you damage the paint of your car, scratch it, also a pair of gloves because you can get a chemical burn and also get a serious frost from handling dry ice. First you you want to locate the dent that you want to remove. Here is the dent we are going to remove today. First, I am going to place the dry ice on top of the dent just to get the metal nice, cool up to help try pop that dent up, it's a little bit better. This could take up to 20 minutes to get that dent to pop up as you work it. Keep checking the area making sure that the metal is getting cold where you want to get cold at and slowly always check your progress and to see where the dent is. You don't want to overdo it. As that metal starts getting cold, you want to start moving that dry ice around. You don't want to keep it on one spot too long. Because we are just trying to repair just that area. You don't want to overdo it. Once again, just keep moving that dry ice around, keep pulling it back, looking at it to see what your progress is. Don't be afraid to rotate and try different things. Just make sure you have that towel wrapped around the dry ice, so you don't scratch your paint. Just keep moving that dry ice around. Alright, about 20 minutes has gone by. Not very much of that dent has come out. A little bit has, about 50% of it. If I keep working at it, it probably will keep coming out. One of the problem is that with using dry ice to remove dents from your car is once you get this accomplished to remove to full dent of your car, you put your car back out in the sun, that heat is going to re-affect that metal and make that dent reappear. That's going to sink again. This is one of the reasons why Body Shops do not use the method of dry ice. This concludes the use of using dry ice, method of using dry ice for removing dents from your car. Now on the next section we are going to be showing you how to remove dents from your car using just a hair dryer.

The only thing causing more damage to the car is this guy. Do not follow ANYTHING these videos are showing you and if you go into a shop for repairs and see this RUN! I've owned a paintless dent repair business for 12 years and this is insane. BTW the dent in "a bad spot" that he can't get to, is easily reached with the proper tools and techniques. Find a quality Paintless Dent Repair technician in your area and have it repaired properly and completely.
