Dent Repair Wilmington NC

Paintless dent removal is the new craze in the auto body shop industry. The PDR process works because of specialized paintless dent removal tools and techniques used by auto technicians who read the paint on the vehicle where dent is located in order to calculate where dent ends so that the tip of the specialized tool can be used in the right spot. From there it’s a matter of patience. Benefits of the PDR process are that it takes less time than traditional collision repair, vehicle retains original paint and it’s less expensive. This technique can be used on small and large dents, on vehicles manufactured in 1990 or beyond, if paint not broken or cracked, the dent is not near the edge of a panel and the panel has not had previous bodywork. Listed below you will find auto body shops around Wilmington that can give you more information.

Dent Repair

5/1/2002

Let's face it. The PDR, or Paintless Dent Removal, market is hot and getting hotter every day. Just open any trade magazine and you're deluged with all the PDR tool offerings that exist. Manufacturers are offering every configuration of tool imaginable in exotic materials, color coded, titanium centers with kryptonite tips. It gets overwhelming when you are in the market for tools that just work. And that's really what it comes down to, tools that work.
