What Is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless Dent Repair, or PDR is the art of manipulating dents, dings, hail, and minor collision damage on vehicles to return to their original shape. The methods used is to gain access behind the damage and use a multitude of metal rods with different edges or tips, and push the metal with precision back into its proper place without damaging the original factory finish.
When access behind the damage is not accessible, another method to remove the damage is to glue pull. Glue pulling is done with a specifically formulated hot glue and tabs designed for removing damage from automotive sheet metal. The tabs are glued to the area of damage. A puller is then attached to the tab to lift the dent.
There is no body filler involved, or any type of paint refinishing. If there are paint scratches, or paint transference from an object, some light color sanding and polishing can be done to help bring your repair to a like new appearance. It is a faster, cleaner, and "greener" way to repair a vehicle for minor cosmetic and collision damage. Repairs are usually completed within a couple hours, depending on the extent of damage and location. There is minimal down time with the vehicle, no issues with paint matching, or parts fitment issues. It will also retain the value of the vehicle for selling, or lease turn in. Unless an insurance claim has been made, there is virtually no indications that damage was sustained to a vehicle.
