What is Paintless Dent Removal?
Paintless Dent Removal/Repair or PDR, is a highly skilled process in which minor dings and dents are removed from an
automobile’s body without the costly, time consuming need for
traditional body shop repairs. The PDR process involves the use of custom designed
dent removal tools that are applied to the inside skin of a vehicle’s sheet metal.
To begin the repair process, a dent technician gains access to the inside skin of
the metal via an automobile’s windows, headlights or other access point.
The technician then applies strategic pressure with the tip of the tool,
behind the damaged area in a repeated, pushing motion.
The dings and dents thus become “massaged out” without any damage to the paint.
PDR can repair dings and dents on any panel of any metal vehicle, as long as the paint has
not been fractured or damaged prior to the repair.
