Small hail

I thought I survived Sundays hail storm but I have 4 (maybe more) small dents right up front by the Airstream letters! Not sure it's worth a claim yet but does anyone have a good fix for small dents? Or a shop near KC? My perfect baby ain't so perfect anymore.

I don't know of any one, but call one of the local car dealers. Most if not all use one of the mobile dent removers. You can also call your insurance agent, they have a list of reputable people, even if you pay out of pocket.

Bummer! Sometimes the little ones will go away on their one after a couple of days (weeks?). I guess the temperature swings cause contracting & expansion of the aluminum and they just disappear. If they are too big or deep they won't go away completely but may become less noticeable. using some dry ice to help this process along has been reported with mixed results.

Thanks! It's supposed to hit 90 today so maybe it will help. If not I'll check with a few dent places.

Aluminum stretches, it has no "memory" like steel. Using dry ice is an urban legend, does not work.
