I think you've been watchin' wayyy too much David blaine dude.

Seriously, I've never ever heard of that. In fact, I didn't even know it was possible to BUY dry ice "locally".

Where did you hear about this dry ice trick? The only thing I ever did with dry ice is put it in a soda bottle with some water shut the lid real tight and watch it grow. You should try it if you have some left. Just don't leave it near anything.

I've heard about it, but I've never heard of it working. You might try heating the area first with a hairdryer, but I seriously doubt that you will have better results.

I've heard many success stories with dry ice and dents. In fact, they are mostly from people on this forum... hmm... maybe do a search.

If its just a door ding, I might be able to help. PM me if interested. We had a guy that would pop out door dings for like $50 a ding, he even came to you if you had a couple. I park so far away from civilization that I don't need him anymore, my friend might still have his number.

You can buy dry ice locally.. Check out baskin robbins or an ice cream parlor. I got a door ding and I tried it out.. It did help a little bit, but I think this technique is for round shallow dents (like from a baseball or something). I paid about 40 cents for the piece of dry ice so I figured it was worth a shot.

Anyone have any sheet metal that they can dent? From the sound of it, I think it really depends on the type of dent, so you probably want a large piece of sheet metal and then dent the hell out of it. The dry ice itself is pretty cheap.
