Guess I better get the hair dryer and canned air out...LOL
I have more than a couple on the 84. Wonder if it would take longer on the 84 since it seems to be a much thicker metal than the 02?!

Plastic bumper likely won't have the same effect since it doesn't expand with heat on contract with cold as drastic as metal, your almost better off if you can reach it from the inside just heat it up with a blow dryer and push it out

Tried it with a hair dryer, didn't work. I'm breaking out the heat gun next time and then we'll see what happens.

I remember my buddy tried this method on his car and it didn't work. To me, paintless dent removal is still the best option.
