What Is Paintless Dent Repair?

Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as paintless dent removal, is a method of removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle without damaging the original factory paint. PDR is a specialized process that requires skilled technicians and specialized tools. PDR technicians use a variety of techniques to massage the dent out from the back side of the panel. This may involve using specialized tools to push and pull the metal back into its original shape.

What Are The Benefits Of PDR?

PDR is a relatively quick and affordable way to repair minor dents and dings. It is also a very effective method, as it can remove dents without damaging the paint. This can help to preserve the value of your vehicle. However, PDR is not suitable for all types of dents. For example, it may not be possible to repair dents that are too deep or that are located in a difficult-to-access area. However, for most minor dents and dings, PDR is a great, cost effective option compared to conventional repair shops.
