I have several 6 inch Marx box cars which still have pretty nice paint jobs, but have two or three unsightly pressure dents in the tops of the cars. I know from experience that you can never really remove an imprint dent 100%, but I was wondering if there are any techniques to smooth them out to a more acceptable look.
I was thinking of opening up the car, and using a large carriage bolt, with a smooth round head, as a tool to gently hand-press the dents out from underneath the roofs, by rubbing the bolt head on the underside of the dent.
Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
P.S.- Anybody ever just give up on removing dents, and instead use Bondo to fill them in, and then sand and repaint the top of the car?
