Paintless dent repair, also known as PDR, is a quick and easy technique used to remove small dents from body panels without the use of body fi ller, or without sanding and painting the damaged area. Developed in the 1930s, this procedure has become popular over the last 20 years or so, and has saved car owners both time and money.
The automotive repair world is becoming more specialized. The first specialist was likely the windshield installer who started coming to a home or business, or wherever a windshield was damaged, instead of forcing the customer to take the car to a dealership or a local car repair facility. Then lube shops started to appear, featuring the drive-through oil change. Likewise, an explosion in expensive alloy wheels spawned the onsite wheel repair business, saving people hundreds of dollars when one of their wheels was dented or damaged.
The PDR guy who comes onsite to repair dented vehicles is the latest convenience in the world of repair. Often, dealerships schedule a PDR specialist for in-house repair on a particular day, every week, to fi x dents. The work isn’t even being done in their body shops because like most, body shop personnel don’t replace windshields and they don’t do PDR, either.
While the basic principles of paintless dent repair have been around a long time, this practice has only recently become commonplace in the repair shop. The reason is simple. The two basic requirements for the use of PDR are (1) the sheet metal must have enough flexibility to allow it to be pushed back into shape and (2) the paint must be tough enough to prevent breaking or cracking. Technological advances in both of these products have made the use of PDR practical.
Sheet metal has become significantly stronger over the last 25 years with the introduction of high-strength steel (HSS) and high-strength low-alloy steel (HSLA). These steels have also been developed to allow automakers to use thinner gauges to reduce weight. An added benefit is the ability to pop out a dent more easily. Chalk one up for PDR.
Paint has also improved, especially from a durability standpoint. Today’s paints are less resistant to damage from the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun, and are more flexible for a longer period of time. This is important for the use of PDR because when sheet metal is dented, the paint is less likely to crack than in the past, allowing for paintless repair.
Paintless dent repair sounds pretty straightforward and simple. So does painting a car. But, it’s not that easy. A good PDR tech has a lot of practice under his belt. Like welding or painting, PDR takes skills that don’t come naturally. It might take as long as three months of daily practice to learn how to remove a simple door ding or a hail dent in the hood.
PDR, much like painting a car, is an art form. It’s a slow, methodical procedure that requires a bit of patience, and a steady hand. But, if you can master PDR, you can provide a valuable service to your customers while saving them time and money on dent repair.
