Introduction

This fix will help individuals fix the dents on their cars easily from home. The hardest part of this Fix is in fact our first step. When cutting a hole at the bottom of the pot and/or bucket you decide to use one must be both careful and patient, since we're cutting a hole in something. Having a helping hand in the process of taping the bucket to your car can also be very helpful, but not needed. Aside from that it isn't a fix that is too complicated for anyone to try!

    • Place the vacuum into the hole at the bottom of the bucket

    • At this point be sure to allow some time for suction to occur and listen for a small popping noise

    • If after some time there is no popping noise, adjusting the placement of the vacuum is recommended
