A hammer, welder, cutting torch, grinder, crowbar, and a paint gun.

Oh, and an orbital sander.

I have a tool that has 3 prongs. the 2 outer ends are just rubber and can be extended beyong the dent and the middle prong is a heavy duty suction cup. It uses a 1/2" ratchet to torque the suction cup out as the ends stay put. works great. Snap-on product

lol oh boy is it! If they are in good spots, you can maybe get behind them and bang them out, but normally they dont return to normal. So you do your best to get it out, bondo it, sand it, bondo it again, prime and panit. If they are in odd places, you can cut little circles out and then weld it and beat it. Then repeat steps 2-5.

Just when I ask someone how to get a dent out and they reply with a list of tools used to cut, chop, slice, bend, and beat, I get scared.
