dont you watch late night TV? It pulls dings. You can get one at Wal Mart for about 12 bucks.....you have to hot glue this thing to your car then it pulls it out..... but it really does work.....just dont do it when your car is warm to the touch, I would say about 75 out side.

Please tell me that you aren't going to try to repair hail damage with a ding king! You would be pulling dents for a month! Just call your insurance company... Unless you have liability only, it will definitely be covered. I don't think that your premium will go up for the first claim either - at least that is how my insuance company is.

Uh..do you get hail often? If so, after getting the dents fixed, invest in a some kind of car port to protect it from the hail. Or build a garage.

Car insurance covers it.

Ding King and stuff like that may only be 12-40 bucks, but they are only good for 1-3 dings. Then you need to get more adhesive and stuff for whatever price, like 20 bucks more. With hail damage, you probably have like 100 dents like my car and you go ahead and figure how much this cheap ding king is going to cost and what kind of craftsmanship it will be.

Paintless dent removal is what they'll ring it up as when doing estimates, mine still came to just over 1600 dollars though when I was in a hail storm once.
