​​​How does PDR work?


The most common methods of paintless dent removal utilize metal rods and body picks to push the dents out from the inner side of the body panel. Alternatively, PDR glue can be used from the outer side of the panel to pull the dents out. In most instances, fine-tuning the repair also involves "tapping down" the dents to remove tiny high spots, making the surface perfectly flat. Necessary tools for PDR include fluorescent lighting or a light-reflection board, which both allow the technician to see the shadows created by a dent. Without paintless dent repair light or reflector board, the fine details can't be seen and the technician cannot position their tools properly to remove the damage. To put it simply, paintless dent removal requires

a specially trained technician to specifically

push exact points to a precise height. This 

can only be properly done with specialized

training and the use of a PDR reading

instrument, such as a PDR reflector 

board or other special paintless dent

removal lighting described above. 


What is PDR?


PDR (also known as Hail Damage Repair, Paintless Dent Removal or Paintless Dent Repair)  is a technique for removing minor dents and dings - such as those caused by hail damage - from the body of an automobile. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, if there is paint damage, PDR may not be suitable. The most common uses for PDR are hail damage repair, door ding repair, minor body creases or minor bumper indentations. The main factors limiting the use of  PDR are damage to the auto body paint or extremely sharp dents and creases.
