My '07 Mustang was unlucky enough to be in the path of a huge hail storm that we had in Northern Florida tonight. I went out and surveyed the damage right after the storm and counted 17 quarter size dents in my hood and roof!! There are probably more small dents. It was sickening listening to the chunks of ice bouncing off of my "baby". I have a one car garage, but my wife's damn Passat was in it! Oh well, I guess it's time for some custom paint. Anyone have to deal with hail damage before? It only looks like the paint was removed in one spot on the roof. The rest are just dents. I am not sure if they can fix those with a paintless system or not. I have never had to have a dent repaired so I am not that familiar with the techniques available. I definitely want it fixed right no matter how much I end up paying (within reason).
Thanks!

I have used Dent Wizard fpr a truck I had. They are excellent at repair as long as the paint is not chipped. When the guy removed the dent from my hood, I could not tell where it was at. I would not hesitate to use a Dent Wizard (or other Dent Repair business) again if I had a need for them. Call your insurance company and tell them your plans. :bigthumbsup

Thanks for your responses...I did contact my insurance company this evening. They will be sending an adjuster by tomorrow to take a look at the damage. Did I mention that I washed and waxed my car earlier today!! The rain drops really beaded up around the dents :so

I heard they use dry ice to remove the dents. Is that true?

They never used dry ice on my truck. All I saw the guy had was a truck full of special tools. He was very good and knew what he was doing.

I would take it to a dealer on a rainy day (when the dents are full of water) and trade it. and yes, if the sheet metal on the car is hot enough and cooled down quicky, some of the dents will pop right out.

Paintless dent repair is the way to go and insurance will pay for it. I've used PDR many times in the past 12 years...very impressed with the results (the dealers know who the best PDR specialists are)...I've used the same guy for all these years.
Believe me he's repaired many new cars on dealer lots...the dealer sold them and no one could ever tell there was hail damage.
