    Do-it-yourself dent removal kits: Worth the $$$?

    I have two somewhat large dents on both of my rear fenders (as well as several small dings but I don't care too much about those). They've been there for a while and I'm sick of looking at them. Do those do-it-yourself dent removal kits actually work or am I going to need a professinal to take care of them? I can provide pictures of the dents if it helps.

    I've seen this yellow-plastic-thing on several TV commercials where they advertise "just twist and pop" and the dent is magically removed because the suction pulls it into its normal position. Supposedly, it works on SOME dents (very minor ones atleast.)

    It really really really depends on the dent.

    Sometimes, it will reverse the dent too much, and you'll end up with a bump.
