You would put super glue on your paint but you wouldnt heat it (im talking really low setting- and far back)
You think every autobody shop takes every pannel off and pounds out the dent.. primers/paints? way to costly.. they mite tell you they did that to get payed more, but its more likly that they heated and cooled it, and a gental tap some times on another part of the pannel. Mostly they will just use a powerfull suction cup, or a plastic coated (don't mess up the paint) megnet!

Well I don't know if it is super glue exactly, just some sort of glue. I never thought of a magnet but you can get some pretty good ones now. I have a ding in my roof I would like to get rid of.

To answer the question about how far the acorns are falling... geez I dunno maybe from the top of an oak tree ??

The glue is regular glue from a hot glue gun. As far as the heat ?. How bout a heat gun?

I have but I don't know if you need to heat the metal, I wouldn't think so as dry ice is very very very cold. I was told it contracts the metal enough to pull out any dent that doesn't have a crease in it.
