[DML] Re: DeLorean Dents

Did you try Dry Ice?  I've heard from other owners that it works
surprisingly well at popping dents back out.  I have heard to heat the
area with a hairdryer, then put the dry ice on it, and you sometimes
actually hear a "pop" when the dent comes back out of the stainless. 
I saw one of the dry ice repairs on a Ohio Club Member's car, and in
the right light you can still see a slight imperfection.

Worth a shot,
