Painting and refinishing are two of the most expensive parts of vehicle repair. On the one hand, due to the high costs of quality color-matched automotive paint, and on the other hand, because of the high labor costs involved. If you'd like to get rid of unsightly dents and dings on your vehicle without incurring the high costs of painting and refinishing, then consider PDR. This technique is not only more affordable, but it also saves you time, as it usually takes far less time than having your vehicle painted. Not all types of damages can be fixed with paintless dent repair though. The size and location of the dent are also factors taken into consideration. Here, at CARSTAR #15118 in Seattle, WA, we have qualified and experienced technicians to assess the extent of the damage on your vehicle's body and determine if PDR is indeed a possibility.
There are basically two ways to perform paintless dent repairs: from the inside (pushing the dents out), or from the outside (pulling them out). Whichever method they choose, the technicians will have to manipulate the metal at the right height and in the precise locations. To repair dents and dings from the inside, they'll utilize metal rods and body picks, while fixing creases from the outside requires glue and specially designed tabs. The exact method is greatly influenced by the location of the damage, the size and the extent to which the paint has been stretched. In many cases, even though paintless dent repair is not a viable solution to fix the damage, it can still be used before repainting, as a way to reduce or eliminate the use of body filler.
