The materials for the repair that we need to prepare are hammers, a block of wood, electric drill, ball-pen,self-locking grips, screws, sanding paper, body filler kit, rags, cellulose body stopper, wire brush, drill bits, and the claw hammer.
Right after preparing all the materials for dent repair and knowing the right procedure through observing, we can start by trying to push the dent with our own hands and see if it can be returned to it original shape. If it does not work, we have to place a block of wood on the outside part of the dent and begin hammering the inside area of the dent. Again, if nothing happens we can start drilling the center of the dent and screw it. Half inch of the screw must stick out so that the claw hammer can grip it. After the filler hardens the shape with a rasp, sandpaper is used to make the shape fine. Then painting will be started making sure that no flaws can be found with the filling.
