Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as paintless dent removal, describes a method of removing minor dents from the body of a motor vehicle using specially designed tools and lights by highly trained technicians to gently push or pull the dent out without damaging the vehicles original finish.
This technique is perfectly suited for light to medium hail damage, door dings, and smaller dents that have not scratched the finish. Paintless dent repair does have it’s limitations and may not be a suitable technique on severely hail damaged vehicles. See Auto Hail Repair Process.
