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 #15131 in Billings, MT to have our expert technicians assess the damage to your vehicle and recommend the best course of action.

It can also be performed from the outside, using specially designed tabs and glue to pull the dents out.
