There are two ways to repair “ding” damage: the traditional method of body repair – which includes hammering and painting – or paintless dent removal.
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a method of repairing dents, dings, creases, and hail damage without disturbing the vehicles original paint. Depth and location of the damage are 2 of the determining factors in whether PDR is a viable solution. Using patience and special tools to exert pressure on the backside of the dent, damage can be reversed without sacrificing the integrity of the factory finish. Unlike conventional repairs PDR does not require any sanding, patching, filling, priming, or painting. Not needing these steps results in a great time savings. Also, without the cost of parts and materials PDR can be an less expensive alternative.
