  • Paintless Dent Removal

    G'day,


    Has anyone had a crack at paintless dent removal on their rig? I am curious to see what results people have had. Disaster or success stories!

    You already asked this question, here.


    The answer hasn't changed, but I'll add that working from inside the car means that you can't see the dent from the outside - something that is essential in PDR. That's why all PDR techs use a light and/or sight board, so they can see what they're doing.


    I've done the training and I have the tools. I deal with dents on a daily basis but I can still make a mess or crack paint using a rod. There is no such thing as an amateur PDR tech - it takes literally thousands of dents before you become competent. I use it to reduce a dent before painting, what's called "push to paint", although I find the glue puller faster and much more effective.


    The important thing to remember is that a dent is just like a crater. There is a depressed part in the middle but there is also a rim or raised section around the outside. Getting the depressed part back up is usually easy. Reducing the high ridge around it is difficult.

      G'day Chris,


      Actually my previous question was more to do with access to the rear quarter section with the aim of PDR. But I do appreciate your input and professional guidance. A neighbour is talking about having some PDR work done on their two vehicles, so I may add mine to the list and save some grief.

        I bought a cheap kit off eBay that uses a glue gun and a bit of a pulling rig.
        Good for small dents, worked okay.
        Unit is a bit of a toy but is a bit of fun.

        Something like this
