not that I experienced.

it is not going to work on dents with kinks in the metal, or where the dent is so far dented that the paint cracked... but that should be common sense

other people suggest dry ice in small dents vs the spray

I liked that very much. I had heard of such a fix, but it'* great to actually see it in action.

I'm anxious to see if that works on shallow hail dents. I have approx 20-30 in my truck.

Probably not as much being that hail dents are usually actually stretching the metal, this usually only works when the panel has just been deflected from shape. Its possible, but I highly doubt it will work.
