This article explains in detail how Dent Wizard’s paintless dent repair process works to make vehicles look like new again.
Assess The Damage
In order to fix it, you have to examine the dent and to determine its size, its location, and how easy you can get to it. Although 80% to 90% of all dents can be removed with the help of PDR, there are some that can’t be fixed using this procedure. You have to see whether the dent you’re dealing with is eligible or not.
Get Access To The Dent
In case you come to the conclusion that PRD can help fix a dent, you need to ensure access to the back side of the dent. This means that you need to remove tail lights, interior panels and anything else that may obstruct access. You can’t perform PDR if you don’t have access to the dent. Sometimes, this requires quite a lot of effort, but the results are well worth it.
Once the pathway is clear, it is time for our expert technicians to do their job.
Careful Examination Of The Dent
Thanks to the special light board, Dent Wizard’s technicians can take a better look at the dent from their point of view. They can determine the ideal location to place their tools on the back side of the dent to push the body of the car into its original position, without affecting the original paint finish.
Apply Light Pressure To Work Out The Dent
Technicians use special tools to gently massage the sheet metal to its original position.
The PRD process can be a one-day procedure, but this depends on the severity and on the location of the dent. The results are amazing, taking into consideration that this procedure is safe and non-intrusive.
