What kinds of dents can be repaired by PDR?
The most common repair is due to one car door hitting another in a parking lot. They range in size from the diameter of a dime (and sometimes even smaller), to the diameter of a grapefruit (and sometimes even larger). Dents should be shallow in nature, without paint damage, not on body lines or edges of panels. This type of repair is very effective on dents caused by hail, baseballs, golf balls, and shopping carts.
What kinds of dents cannot be repaired by PDR?
Chances are that if your car has run into another car or object we can not repair it. The process is not favourable toward dents that have sharp creases, paint damage, crash damage, and dents that run deep into a body line or on the edge of a body panel. The best way to find out if a dent on your vehicle is repairable is to contact Dents Unlimited.
Can PDR be used to repair a dent on a bumper?
Unfortunately PDR is only effective on the metal body panels of vehicles. Dents on bumpers, whether plastic or steel, cannot be repaired with PDR.
