considering no chipped paint, anyone got any cost effective suggestions for pulling debts out?

My sister's brand new 2012 Nissan rogue is fucked by hail. She's taking it in to some shop that use strong electro magnet to pull the dents. I'll see how they do her car and depends on results take mine in. I discovered some more dents on the hood :/

you could try the hair dryer/compressed air trick. Heat the dent with the hair dryer until it's warm to the touch, then with the compressed air can upside down, spray it until the dent pops. It will work, as long as there isn't any crease in the dent, and you have to use the compressed air right after the hair dryer. It's the rapid change from hot to cold that makes it pop. Also, don't try this on plastic.

They recommend doing it right after you get the dent as the metal retains its "memory form" so it can "snap" back, but its been a few days since then so I am not sure it'll work.
