Understanding Paintless Dent Repair

Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a great way to remove minor dents and dings from the body of your car. Also commonly known as paintless dent removal, this method can be used for a wide range of damages, but only if the paint surface is intact. Often used to repair hail damage, bodylines damage, minor creases and door dings, PDR works on both aluminum and steel panels. Even if your car needs painting, the method can still be use to prep the damaged panel, therefore reducing the need for body filler and also reducing your costs. Paintless dent repair is not only quicker, but also a more affordable way of repairing this type of damage. Contact CARSTAR Car Masters Collision Mid City in Los Angeles, CA to find out more about our PDR process and technique.

How Does PDR Work?

Just as the location and size of the damage determine whether or not PDR is a solution for your car, they also determine how the process works. Some dents or creases require technicians to push out the dents from the metal panel, while other types may require the use of specially designed tabs to pull out the dents from the outside. In all cases though, the technicians are required to manipulate the metal in precise locations, using a PDR reading instrument called paintless dent repair light. It is important for the technician to be able to visualize the deformation of the dent, in order to be able to locate the tip of the tool. As this method of repair is intrinsically manual, it is equally important to have highly experienced and skilled technicians working on your vehicle.

Why Choose CARSTAR Los Angeles, CA For Your PDR?

We have some of the best technicians in the field - it's as simple as that. Paintless Dent Repair has become very commonly used for fixing minor dents and dings, and the technique has evolved, but it still involves a high level of manual labor. The more skilled the technicians, the better the chances of repairing even larger dents. The location of the dent, the size and the extent are all factors that influence whether or not PDR is a feasible solution, but skilled and experienced technicians can certainly tip the balance.
