Rats. Got my first ding on my 2006 Prius (almost made it a full year). No

you follow the directions carefully" to "totally useless rip-off".
I'd like to hear about experiences people have had using that product. It's
only about $5 to $0, so the risk is low provided it doesn't cause further

My son tried it on his Acura and it worked surprisingly well. He was working

I don't know why it doesn't rip the paint off the metal, but it doesn't.

Thanks for the feedback, Mike. Yeah, this ding is on a flat section of the
rear passenger door, so I figured it would be a good situation to attempt it
myself. I'm not really prepared to take it to a body shop, because I know
it'll just get dinged again. Maybe I'll wait for a few dings, then take it
if the Pops-A-Dent isn't successful.
