Default Paintless Dent Repair Kit

Unfortunately a ladder tipped over on to the hood of my 65 Mustang.

I had just a few months ago replaced the hood with new paint.

It was my fault as I should have watched the ladder better.

Anyway there really are no scratches and the 3 or 4 dents are pretty minor and none on the hood line creases. One is close to the center crease but the crease is still good.

So I have been thinking of taking to a paintless dent repair place, but also noticed there are kits out there.

Some kits are a suction cup while others use glue and a truss that you can use the crank out the dent.

Anyone have experience with this? I wonder if the glue will damage my paint. It was painted at a Ford Dealer body shop with clear coat so I am sure its as good of aftermarket paint quality as you would normally see.

Thoughts??

Take it to a paintless guy, that is an art form that takes a while to perfect. It would be a shame to mess it up yourself trying to learn and have to repaint the whole hood. I had a crease taken out of the wife car for less than $50. On the crease he used neither a cup or glue, but he used a metal spade and massaged it from the back side.

I used the glue kit on my truck and saved hundreds, but it did remove part of a decal also. I just removed more of the decal to make it look less objectionable. The paint itself was unaffected.

I was thinking of practicing on my kids cars. They have some small dents and besides I paid for their cars anyway.

I may just get an estimate, I find it hard to pay for stuff I think I can do, but if its something I cant do or is risky - then it makes sense... Not sure that last run on sentence made sense.

I have had the paintless repair done several times in a few different cars. I was always happy with it.
Older cars are a little more difficult because the steel is heavier. However you said it is a new hood so you may be good to go.

Good luck
