    Dent pulling suction pads

    Anyone used to cheap ones off ebay, looking to buy one to add to my collection, as will always coming in handle from little knocks. On ebay there like 5 quid with P&P included. Are they any good?

    Heres a example.

    Yep, I've used one.
    £4.99 from Halfords.

    Worked a treat, after some low-life bmw driver side-swiped my car when turning round.
    Disappeared before I had a chance to get any details.

    Anyway, they work, as long as you don't have a crease in the dent.

    The other thing that works on dents is dry ice, but you need to find somewhere that sells it, & have protective gloves etc.

    But for a fiver, I would buy one & store in your arsenal.

    Dry Ice also works very well, but you need to buy heavy-duty gloves & also, find somewhere that sells it.
