Although the idea of a quick and affordable fix is always alluring, it is important to understand what can and what cannot be fixed with PDR. The end goal should always be a perfect looking auto body. Most commonly, paintless dent repair is used to fix hail damage, dents caused by shopping carts or banging doors, minor creases and so on. Usually, the size of the dent determines whether PDR is a possible fix or not. Sometimes though, even dents that are several inches in diameter can be fixed through this technique if the paint is not stretched. Shallow large creases can also be repaired with this method, but sharp dents and dings usually require body fillers and repainting. The experience of the technician is also a factor, so be sure to contact CARSTAR Patriot Auto Body Albert Pike in Hot Springs, AR to have our expert technicians assess the damage to your vehicle and recommend the best course of action.
PDR is a more and more common technique used by auto body repair shops as it is a faster, more efficient and less expensive method of repairing minor dents, creases or dings. The techniques is based on the use of body picks and metal rods, which push out the dents from the underside of the panel. It can also be performed from the outside, using specially designed tabs and glue to pull the dents out. Once these steps are complete, a fine tuning is required, which oftentimes involves removing high spots by tapping down the repair. Not all dents or damages can be repaired this way, so contact our specialized technicians at CARSTAR Patriot Auto Body Albert Pike in Hot Springs, AR to learn more and have your vehicle assessed.
