Paintless Dent Repair refers to a method for removing small dents in a car’s body without using paint. It involves the use of special chemicals that are injected into the dent, so that the metal is exposed and the color is removed. Paintless Dent Removal can be used to repair most types of dents including dents caused by collisions, weather-related damages and road debris. Paintless Dent Repair can be used on steel and aluminum panels alike.
Most dents occur while the vehicle is driven, as the impact causes the metal to vibrate and make dings in the panels beneath the dented area. Paintless dent repairs are performed quickly and with minimal scarring, making this a popular option for restoring older vehicles. Dents caused by hail damage or road debris can be repaired easily with paintless dent repair. H Hail damage can also cause minor dings in vehicles, as small pellets of metal fragments deposited on the underside of the vehicle over time can cause dings and dents, especially if the vehicle is driven over large stones or other objects.
With hail damage, the panels underneath the door dings can warp, split or contract. Old vehicle owners may need to replace door dings with new panels after repairing the existing ones.
