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 Alan Conner Collision Center - Chester in Chester, VA to have our expert technicians assess the damage to your vehicle and recommend the best course of action.
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.
