popping dent

If you haven't taken care of this:
I fixed a friends Prius.
Bought a $5 nylon trim tool kit from Harbor Freight Tools.
Removed the fascia.
Placed it's finished side against a patio cushion.
Used my $16 heat gun to soften the back side of plastic.
Pushed against the 'bulge' with one foot while I held the heat on, which pushed the plastic back out, restoring the fascia.
Minor scratches to the clear coat came right out with 3M Finesse, microfine polishing compound.
Then wax.
