Read up on this little infographic we put together to help our customers make better decisions about what service the hire to work on their car truck or SUV. Not all paintless repair providers are equal.
Our client called and scheduled this repair in Bethel Park, PA just after the new year. We arrived onsite and removed the dent in the driveway in about 1.5 hours. Heres how we did it;
We find a way to get behind the bumper dent, whether its from the tail light, or actually removing part of the bumper which we describe in another blog post where we repaired a honda odyssey.
Next we add massive amounts of heat, then push the bumper from behind. Yes you may be able to do some of this work, but pushing in the right spot and hyper cooling the dent to lock in the released pressure is key to holding the new shape.
Often times there will still be crowns or smiles from the pressure, those too can be reduced by adding more heat, and then holding the crown down while super cooling the panel. Finally we use the actual paintless dent repair method to do any finish work needed on the bumper cover. This involves using our paintless tools to push from behind while maintaining the paint finish.
The list of paintless dent repair tools used in any given repair can be exhaustive. Check out our Tools page for more information on the tools we use and where we buy them from
The Chevrolet dealer called us with an emergency; they had a vehicle sold and it came off the car carrier with a dent in the hood. this car has high strength steel; its very difficult to remove dents from such and as a result is a little more expensive to repair.
The dent came out great and the customer took delivery of his car on time. This is a great example of why PDR is so superior to conventional body shop methods; the car w as repaired in hours not days. The factory finish is intact and there is no carafax report or potential for future loss of value. If you have dents like this don't hesitate to give us a call.
Yes, look closely and you will see a tiny crease that remains on the left and deepest part of the crease dent. This repair is an exception to our normal near perfect repairs. The customer refused to paint his car, and we initially turned down the job.
After some nudging and reconsideration, we came out on Saturday and spent the better part of the day working on this crease dent.
Hello from Pittsburgh, PA! today we are talking about a Porsche 911 Carrera S. This is one fine automobile with just one, well two small problems; dents.
This client reached out to us from South Carolina or at least that is what the caller ID said. After speaking with him we identified the damage, and set an appointment to repair his baby.
He searched for over 1 year in an effort to find the right 911 Porsche that would satisfy his needs. This sample had just 2800 miles on the odometer and when our client was washing the car, the hose bib fell directly onto the top of the rear quarter panel.
He was clearly unsure of the merit of paintless dent repair but when we arrived on site at his home in Waterdam Commons in McMurray, PA I think his fears were put to rest.
It took just minutes to remove the tail light lens and gain access to the 2 dents. From there it didn't take long at all to get the Porsche 911 back to pre-damage condition. Our clients said and i quote "I'll be damned you really got them out, I can't believe it!"
