Woot, I knew that'd work for yah. I saw it and I instantly thought of that vid I once saw on the internet. Glad it works as they portrayed it! NICE! Free fix!

Thats an invaluable secret to know.

that'* awsome! I've never seen that before but if the panel isn't kinked it looks like a good way to get a dent out.

I hope that wasn't a red shop rag you were wiping the paint with...
