so my left rear door got little ding on it from some one opening ther door aganist it. took it to some body shops here and all the quotes ranged between $900.00- $1200.00. remembered from an infomercial a product called the Ding King. found it on the internet for $14.99+ shipping.

the total came to $24.00. so does it really work.it says it won't work on a pointed ding which was what the ding on my E resembled. well i think it was a well $24.00 spent, you decide......

Thanks for the info, Rick! Seems like money well spent.

I never seemed to have any problem with my 2 prior Es, but this one seems to be a ding magnet . . . I even purposely park away from other vehicles and the dings still show up! :rolleyes:

That does look pretty good. Looks like a good use of $25 to me....and i'm so cheap I recycle drinking straws. :wink:

My wife's 97 CRV was pretty beat up by 2005. I bought the Ding King and took out about 6-7 door dings etc. There were 2-3 that it did not work on. These were dimples or dings that had a sharp crease or pit like character.

cool job of it!

I have tried the ding king on my '95 Accord V6 and it does work if you take your time and do multiple times. You did an awesome job, Rick.

I'm actually suprised that it worked. Merry Christmas to me.


Darn, I think the Mom threw away my Ding King kit when she cleaned out the garage... :-(
Yeah, but did she throw out your "magazines"?

Looks like you did a fine job, and you saved some $ over a professional dent mender, but whatever that idiot Billy sells I will not buy! Can't stand the mouth on that guy.

I have a PDR guy I go to, brought him my E twice and did an outstanding job on both dents. roughly between $90-120 per job... Rick has saved a great deal of $ with his DIY.

I also can't stand to hear Billy bob ------ but the couple items bought worked.

I'll have to find one of these Ding King kit's.

Billy Mays could find a company that made bricks out of $hit and sell it on tv and I would buy them. And I would use them to build an outhouse. A $hithouse if you will. A brick $hithouse. In fact, a $hit-brick $hithouse. And it would be a glorious sight to see :D
Ok funnyman, I get your point. I still say Billy IS the reason that the MUTE button was invented on the TV!:D He's not Vince with the "Shamwow" but I think they both hail from the shallow end of the gene pool.
