Thanks
I once bought a Ding King at the "As Seen on TV" store in Tennessee. It has a couple of suction cups with threaded stems that you fill with some type of epoxy. Once it sets, you put a fixture around the stem and with a butterfly nut, screw down. This causes the suction cup to lift and eventually the epoxy breaks free. It usually takes a few applications as the dent disappears a little each time.

The "As Seen on TV" store in Tennessee is now gone so you're on your own finding one. You may find it next to the "Thigh Master" on a Google search.
