I met this one guy recently his name was Moore and named his company one1moore and he did a demenstration and used metal rods with a curved tip and the end to push dents out, anyone heard of it or him? He can get out a dent the size of a fist with just that and makes it look perfect. I'm sure there's others that do use this technique.

I had a very very similar dent from a lady in subbie outback backin up into my passenger side door and quarter panel and PDR removed the dent but couldnt completely remove the vertical crease (say removed about 90% of it) because the damage was at the outer edge of the quarter panel... you may have better luck with a fender tho. PDR is worth it... he fixed tht and cleared out all the dings in my door for about 100ish.

I just tried this, very dissapointed. I have a dent on my door thats been bothering me for ages. It's not a sharp dent, more of a dull long dent, but not very deep.

Anyway, long story short, I wasted $5 on an air duster which i really needed for gas at the moment lol.
Dry ice more effective since you can do it over a broader area, and it's consistently cooler. But even that is dependent on the dent itself. Personally I really favour just taking it in to a PDR shop. They are much more affordable.

Concept looks good but I'd be concerned that the paint wouldn't survive- especially with the dry ice method
I wouldn't do it at high noon on a sweltering summer's day, but I haven't yet heard any stories of paint damage.

That's standard PDR (paintless dent removal). The technician will use a variety of metal rods and pulling cups around the dent to pull and massage the dent back into shape.
www.dentwizard.com is one of the bigger names around here using that technique.
It's advantageous for it's fast work and low cost. Some places in the US will charge something like $80 for the first ding and $10 for every one after. Really good rates, and they can pull some pretty big dents out.
The disadvantage can be that dents often have a scratch or chip at the base, and they don't repaint.

You can buy DIYer home PDR kits like the DingKing for anything from $15-$100, but they generally don't work well on anything bigger than a knuckle.
A pro's kit is usually some $750+ in rods and $250+ in glue and tabs.

I know this post is old but it may help some of you.
First, i would try heating the panel with heat gun and then cool it down with compressed air. This method works great. Also if dent shallow try to remove panel and access it from backside. Push it out with your hand. This should minimize the size of your dent.
