another dent pulling story

That is a wonderful solution posted by TG Twinkle.

I pulled a dent in the rear end cap this weekend, but I purchased a dent puller much like Wingeezer described after seeing a post on pinterest about a similar successful project. I was able to pull the dent, but of course the gouges made by branches, etc are still there.

I also attempted to pull a dent from the left rear corner. The line of the curve now follows its original arc, but I have several creases that could not be removed due to the nature of the original damage, and the compound curve of the corner panel.
