Crashed Chevy Volt Dent Repair - Paintless Dent Removal - Does it work?

I got the replacement doors on the Volt, but there’s still a couple of dents to get out. I bought a "hot-glue gun" dent remover and set to work! Please click SHOW MORE!

Fixing a Crashed Chevy Volt

Chevy Volt Dent Repair

I bought a Harbor Freight paint-less dent removal tool. It’s essentially a hot-glue gun, a crossbar, and tabs with a threaded bolt. You glue the tab to the car, and then pull it up with the crossbar by rotating a threaded knob. All other kits are similar to this. If I did this again, I think I would buy a kit with more accessories. It seems like having more and different size tabs would make it easier/better to remove dents.
I would get something like this one:

The kit also included only a very small bottle of glue remover. It turned out to just be acetone anyways. I bought a can of it at the hardware store. The other alternative would be to get some strong isopropyl alcohol.

I ended up breaking my Harbor Freight puller and the dent on the fender really wasn’t pulling out from it any more anyways. So, I removed the interior of the back of the car to get at the sheet metal. There wasn’t much access, but I found a one-inch-square hole which I could insert a socket extension and a jack handle through. I was able to push and pound with those and get the metal pushed out some more.

The dents in the car certainly are not back to a "like-new" body, but they are certainly an improvement. I think I’ll try a little Bondo and paint and see how it turns out!
