Glue pulling safe for dent removal?

I have a 2012 Mustang GT. There it was innocently sitting in my driveway. Then a fairly small/medium branch fell on it resulting in a half dollar dimple just between the roof and the driver's side door. There's no inside access to the dent. Someone who does ding/dent repairs at the local Ford dealership said glue pulling was the best option. Is that true? Is dent pulling safe? Are there any other viable options for removing the dent? I really want it gone by the safest method. Any input helpful here. Thanks. No paint damage by the way.

I had 11 dents on the roof of my other car near the passenger doors, some of them deeper and bigger than yours. They pulled them out and it's like new again.

They told me that this method was safe as long as there were no prior repair or bondo where they apply the glue. There was also a risk that the glue would not be strong enough, but in my case it worked perfectly. It didn't leave any marks on the paint either.

I know it is one of the tricks PDR guys use.

2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.

Yes glue pulling will work good as long as the dent is not on the crease or affecting the crease in the rail section you are talking about. If it is then you will need to strip the headliner & interior so a hole can be drilled on the inside of the rail for access to the dent.

Glue pulling is great and works nice - I've done a bit of it - best to call someone in your area that is experienced in PDR (paintless dent removal). Will cost you a few bucks but will be done right the first time.

Take it to a dent pulling outfit. Had several dents removed from my 06 GT before I traded it for my 13 GT and did a terrific job. Wasn't that pricey.
