    Default TomcoPDR... I'm calling you out!

    I've read on numerous posts that when someone needs a dent fixed, they should call out one TomcoPDR.

    I've seen your work and no doubt, you are good at what you do.



    Initially, I was going to call you to get this fixed but I thought I'd canvas around and see what the competition offers before I go to the best.

    After much searching, there's a new sheriff in town.



    Showcase's "Dent King" Dent Remover Kit

    Excerpt:

    You've got a few dents here and there on your car. They're not that big, but they are unsightly. You want to get rid of them, but you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars to leave your car at the body shop for a few days.

    Now, you can get rid of those dents yourself and save hundreds of dollars in the process with the tool that body shop professionals use - the Dent Repair kit!

    ...Dent Repair comes with everything you need to remove ugly dents safely and easily. With the Dent Repair system, you can get rid of those dents fast while keeping money in your pocket.

    ...So, get rid of that ugly dent once and for all with the professional grade auto body kit that you can use right at home! Order Dent Repair today!


    ================================

    At only $9.99CDNexcludes s&h, how can you pass on this opportunity! And the product has 'King' as part of its' name. It HAS to be good!

    So I went ahead and ordered one. Combined shipping with my Miracle Blade knife block, it came out to ~$50CDN.

    25 Days Later...



    Guess what was waiting at my front steps today! Oooh, DHL. Pretty quick.

    As I open the package, I see that it has been pre-ripped for me:



    Those DHL guys... Always trying to save the customer time. Much appreciated boys!



    Upon 'opening,' I noticed this one bottle on the corner of the box, stated "Dent King Solution."

    Oddly enough, it's empty.



    Probably had melamine in it. For safety reasons, they got rid of it for me.



    Now, this is what I get. According to the manual, I'm suppose to get:

    - Pulling Bridge
    - Wingnut
    - Hot Glue Gun
    - Dent Pulling Tabs (2)
    - Glue
    - Ding King Solution (Doesn't say if it's suppose to be empty or not though.)
    - A 'knockdown'
    - And a 'scrapper.'

    Instruction Manual:

    Continued! Next post will be Performance!

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Hmmmm. You do realize that just because it pulls the dent out it doesn't necessarily mean it does a great job of it right?

    I think it's more of a joke post. If anything, I think in the end it'll reinforce TomCo's position even more.

    Performance

    So, waiting outside my house to let the glue gun heat is pretty sweet especially with nippy fall weather.





    20 minutes later, the 'glue' finally got all gooey and then I placed it on the device.



    Uh... This took me a while. The glue wouldn't stick to the car and had to use more than recommend. Okay, a LOT more.

    For some reason, the gun stopped heating so I plugged it in the other socket and...

    BAM! The gun shorted out and the cord blew up on my hand.



    Lousy 'Made in China' gun. I hate choo!



    Only soot. No biggie. I'm a man.

    MOVING RIGHT ALONG...

    Pulled out my real hot glue gun with real glue and continued on.



    YES! It stuck! Now attempt one...



    Fudge. Didn't work. No worries. Attempt 2...



    Crap. Maybe if I change the angle...



    Hm... Okay. So after nine attempts and many expletives later, I finally got it to show some resistance.

    Twisting... POP!

    SUCCESS!

    Wait.

    The glue won't come off.

    Better pull out the 'scrapper'.



    RESULT

    VERDICT

    And so, after hours of time-consuming fun, it finally got rid of my dent. There's still a little one on the top of the curve but I like my thumb.

    All in all, it does the job but you're at risk of shocks, inferior products and burns.

    Despite all that, I do believe that the Dent King is a viable contender for TomcoPDR's title as 'King of Dents.'

    There's many casualties along the way but it's the risk you're willing to take.

    After all, it is the 'Dent King.'

    I give it my thumbs up.

    Hot glue. It doesn't really bind onto metal like superglue. It just sits on top of it. Like Elmer's glue.

    This is merely a joke. It's more like a public safety announcement.

    You can buy the 'Dent King' and yeah, it'll get rid of the dent.

    But is your skin worth $9.99 CDN*?

    If you think so, order now!

    I just noticed that Showcase advertises it as 'Dent King' but the instruction manual says, Ding King.'

    It's so good it has two names!

    I bought one of these from crappy tire many years ago. Returned it as soon as I opened the box and saw whats inside of it haha. What a joke all it is in a plunger and we all know how well that works.

    for anything called dent king

    for TomcoPDR and his many threads of flawless dent removals

    I dunno - it worked. I like DIY projects.

    So here's what I want to know:
    Tom: In the end, he paid $50 for the kit. He paid for the hassles (would have been more if he didn't have another glue gun handy). He paid for his time and effort, and almost electrocuting himself to death with a faulty product.

    Is it wrong for me to ask you publicly how much such a dent would cost to get fixed? Can I assume as well that you would fix it 100%, so you can no longer see the dent? (To me, it looks pretty obvious in the picture still - though much better than the original.)

    1.) I didn't really pay $50 for the kit. I paid $50 with combined shipping because I bought a Miracle Blade knife block set.

    The price is still $9.99. I'm just unsure with the shipping.

    2.) I am quite intrigued as to how much this would've cost.

    If you hammer certain tension points while you used the pull device you would get a better result aswell.
