Paintless Dent Repairs – What is PDR?
Paintless dent removal (PDR) is an increasingly popular alternative to the services that panel beaters and other auto body specialists provide. While PDR isn’t a suitable substitute for major auto body work, in cases where the damage is relatively minor, it’s an excellent alternative because it’s:
Convenient and quick – Depending on the damage, PDR is usually a single-day job
Cost-effective – In comparison to panel beating, PDR is a very affordable option
Effective – A variety of cosmetic damage, including dings and dents, can be repaired
These benefits have seen PDR escalate in availability and popularity, with many car owners turning to respected service providers like Colour Mechanix in Maitland for their car’s cosmetic repair needs.
How Does Paintless Dent Removal Work?
A step-by-step process is required to effectively remove minor body damage from vehicles caused by minor collisions, hail damage and other common causes of cosmetic auto body damage.
Step One – Assess the Damage – How big is the damaged area? Can it be repaired with PDR?
Step Two – Access the Dent – Body panels or tail lights may need to be removed to access the dent.
Step Three – Illuminate the Dent – Using a special light, the PDR technician inspects the dent.
Step Four – Apply Pressure – Special tools apply pressure to the dent, pushing it back into position.
This is a very quick, non-invasive process which can be used to restore the vehicle’s body by removing minor dents and dings. To learn more about this amazing process and find out whether it’s suitable for the damage on your car, call the PDR specialists at Colour Mechanix – 0412 213 990.
