Ding King dent remover---

I ordered the Ding King dent remover kit the other day, and yesterday the temp got up to about 68* here (50-80* recommended) and after I returned from a short ride I decided to try it on a small dent I had put in my gas tank when the bike almost went over due to the side stand not being down, I had caught it with a good bit of catching being my knee... (actually that is why I bought the kit)...
Anyway it was just a small dent and it pulled out pretty darn good, mostly you can't see it even knowing it's there, but if you get the light just right you can see a small imperfection... It does say in the instructions not to use it on repainted surfaces, only on OEM paint jobs, I guess it might pull the paint off some repaint jobs...
Anyone else ever used the Ding King...???...Anyway I was pleased, not perfect but almost......
It was on sale for about $15 at this site...

never used it...as a guy who grew up in a restoration/collison shop...I had my doubts...

But then I saw the dudes that do hail repair...wow...amazing

Ive also heard a bit of dry ice rubbed on a small dent will pop it right out...as long as there is no creasing

I got mine at Advanced Auto. Used it to pull a dent from my old KZ750 tank. Not perfect, but very much improved. Without having to repaint and bondo, this is a good choice.

I've used it on a car, never on my bike. It didn't really work on the car, although the dent was pretty big (about 7 inches diameter).. It seems like it will work OK as long as the dent is a certain size\shape..

I don't think the dent king will work for this dent.
It's on the curve of the tank - no flat surface.
'Course I could be in error. I don't have a lot of experience with this sort of thing.

I don't have any pictures of my tank dent, but it was about 1/2 dollar size and a bit oblong, and on the flater side of the tank... I made 4-6 pulls before it looked good...
I also pulled a smaller one about quarter sized behind the door on my Chevy PU that was in a kind of rolled area, it required a few pulls also and was not perfect but much much less noticably...
I have my doubts about the dent above due to the heavily curved area, but for the cost I think it would be worth a try, after all the Ding King is cheap and would be handy just to have around for your autos and whatever especially if you live in an area that is subject to hail damage...
That is just my opinion with what little experience I have with the Ding-King...HTH...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
