This iteration of the Silvia (sold in United States and Canada as the
Datsun 200SX and in Mexico as the Datsun Sakura), available as a 2-door
hardtop coupe and a 3-door hatchback, was uniquely progressive in that it
was originally intended to feature a rotary engine, designed and built by
Nissan. The resulting unit was fairly unreliable, and forestalled
production. Ironically, it shared a chassis code with the also ill-fated
Mazda Cosmo, first Japanese production car to feature a rotary engine. The
car was redesigned shortly after it was released and the Wankel power plant
was replaced by a line of conventional piston engines based on the new
Z-series engine. These included the Z20 and the turbocharged and fuel injected Z18ET. In
USA/Canada the 200SX had the Z20E with H165 rear axle from 1979-1981. From
1982--1983, it had a Z22E engine with H190 rear axle. Vehicles with engines
over 2000cc are still considered "compact" vehicles under Japanese
regulations regarding engine size

(Car is now sold, but I left the video up for fans of the 200SX) This is a

Paintless Dent Repair Using a Heat Gun and a Can of Compressed Gas Duster
Can you repair dents in an automobile with a hair dryer and a can of
compressed air? Yes and no. It depends upon the location and severity of
the damage. But as I have demonstrated, with a heat gun, $9 worth of Endust
Duster, and about 15 minutes, you can achieve some remarkable results.

Responses to the most common criticisms:
Q. Why didn't you just push the dent out from behind?
A. This is a hybrid vehicle and there is A/C equipment for battery cooling
that is located between the sheet metal and the interior finish. The dent
was simply not accessible from the inside.
Q. Why didn't you just use a toilet plunger and pull the dent out?
A. That may have worked on the larger of the two dents, but the surface
area of the smaller dent would have made that impossible.
Q. This video and photos of the dents have been Photoshopped and faked!
A. Absolutely not. I will gladly attest that this video and the images of
the dent, before and after, have not been retouched. I also have a witness
who observed the process and would attest the same.
Q. "Tapping" the panel like you did in the video would have popped the dent
out without the heating and cooling.
A. My attempts to pop the dent out with persuasive tapping by hand and a
rubber mallet prior to the heating / cooling did not have any impact.
Q. This process didn't help, you can still see the dents!
A. Yes. if you look closely you can still see the smaller of the two dents.
However, the larger of the two is not distinguishable to the casual
observer. This process made a significant improvement to the appearance of
both dents. It is not a factory perfect repair, but this is not a valuable
vehicle either. I could not justify the expense of a professional body shop
for a vehicle that is seven years old and +150,000 miles. This process
provided a good alternative.
