Dents?

Anybody have any good do-it-youself method of pulling a minor dent out? And is there anything that I can use to get scratches out of my truck (its black so you can see every little scratch)

use a rubber toilet plunger if the dent is around the size of your fist. You'll have to drill a hole in it(the plunger not the dent), push it into the center of the dent, plug the hole with tape, and pull. Or buy yourself an industrial suction cup. I've used this procedure several times with some very good results, however I wouldn't do it to a vehicle I really loved.
