As the owner of a vehicle, whether it is a brand new model or an older classic car, many times dings and dents can occur that detract from the overall appeal and looks of the vehicle. Although you want these dents repaired, you do not want to spend tons of money paying a body shop to have them pulled out, repaired, then repainted. Often, however, these dents can be repaired using paintless dent repair.
If these dents are shallow and the collision was soft enough that the paint remained intact, then they are ideal candidates for this repair procedure. These types of dents often affect the outer clear coat layer only and their damage is mostly aesthetic in nature.
Paintless dent removal approaches the dent from the inside, although this may seem a bit complicated with the limited space available, it can be quite simple for a professional. A pro can evaluate the vehicle and come up with the best solution to get it back to where it should be or even better. They have the specialized tools required to do this job professionally and know how to access the damaged area quickly without unnecessarily breaking trim or interior paneling.
The repair technician uses these specialized tools from the inside by applying the proper amount and shape of pressure to the damaged area. Often, the technician will simultaneously hold other tools against the outside surface to prevent the dent from being pushed out too far. After the dent is returned to its original location and is properly aligned, they will buff it and the surrounding area to blend these areas together again.
Although this type of dent repair is not applicable for every scenario in body work, especially after the damage has occurred from a major accident, this is a quick and affordable alternative to the small, soft dents that often occur from everyday use of an automobile.
