Whether you’re a car enthusiast or just looking out for your daily drive, keeping your car dent-free is an essential practice to maintain its value and aesthetic. There is a sense of pride when each panel looks pristine, but sometimes accidents happen, seeing the occurrence of large or small dents that need intervention.
It can be easy to shrug off imperfections as you want to avoid meeting the price of fixing each dent. However, at Eightyeight Detailing, we offer a low paintless dent removal cost Sydney drivers will find more accessible, given our refined and rapid repairs process available.
In this guide, we will look at everything you need to know about paintless dent repair and how the process is simpler and cheaper than panel beating.
What is Paintless Dent Removal?
Paintless dent removal is like an art form, where technicians remove dents from the exterior of your car panels without requiring repainting or spraying. Where possible, it’s best to maintain the original factory paint because it is hard to replicate, which is why this PDR process is becoming increasingly popular.
No car is immune to damage, whether you drive a Mercedes, Camry, BMW or Skoda. But, as a superior process with quick repairs, damage on your rear door, hail dents and dings from other cars, are restored by skilled technicians by pushing or pulling the panels. The technique massages the panels back into place using specialised tools, whether made from an aluminium alloy or steel panels.
Although each dent is different and complexities will arise depending on access – meaning whether panels need removal or not, paint quality, location and depth of the dents, the technician is precise throughout the process, which sees a high success rate. For more difficult car dent removal, a specialised hot glue aids the process and helps leave an even finish.
