It might be a little intimidating to attempt any type of home auto body repair, but fixing small dents is an easy way to learn.
Before tackling this project, keep in mind a few pointers. If the dent is on the bumper you want to be careful in the drilling stage so that you do not pop the tire. Not only is it frustrating to have another project come up in the middle of one you are working on, it could be harmful to you. If the dent is a large one (larger than a hard-backed book), you might want to just replace the panel that the dent is on. It would be easier and cheaper.
If you don't have some of the equipment that is mentioned in the article, you can buy or rent it from an auto parts or hardware store.
