Paintless dent repair is a method of removing dents from vehicle sheet metal using specialized manual tools and carefully applied pressure. It doesn’t take much impact for a mark to be left behind after a car bump or accident. A minor dent can be a major inconvenience for drivers since the repairs needed to remove the dent are known to be complicated and extensive.
Fortunately for drivers in the modern age, collision repair technicians have found a way to simplify dent removal. Paintless dent removal is growing increasingly popular with today’s car owners who want to save time and money while restoring their car to its original appearance.
The goal is to push the indented metal back into shape while preserving the factory paint.
