Rats.  Got my first ding on my 2006 Prius (almost made it a full year).  No
crease, no paint damage; fairly round, about the size of a quarter, maybe a
little bigger.

I've seen reviews on the Pops-A-Dent system that range from "works great if
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
on an area with a semi-circular dent so the result wasn't great, but with
one like you describe it could be a winner.

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.
