are some of the most complex to repair. Typically, these are a result
of an accident or collision. What makes these so complex is the way
that these dents contort the metal along a vehicle’s bodyline. Often
times, attempting to repair damaged metal and restore a vehicle’s body
to its original shape can seem impractical. This is because every car
has its own unique metal memory that is formed during production when
the metal is heavily heated to form its shape. When a vehicle receives
a crease dent, their metal memory is usually lost, thus making PDR
Door dings are
small imperfections on a vehicle panel typically resulting from the
unintentional contact of another vehicle’s door. These are generally
located on a vehicle’s fenders and doors. Often times these are the
result of someone else being careless with their vehicle in a parking
lot. Door dings are usually fairly easy to repair when no bodywork or
paintwork is necessary.
moderate size round dents typically result from a round object like a
baseball, golf ball or basketball. Sometimes they are also the result
of a piece of hail. These items tend to hit and bounce off the vehicle
leaving behind a small to moderate dent or dimple in a vehicle’s body.
These are common on many vehicle panels including the hood, roof, deck
lid, doors, and fenders. As with any other type of ding or dent, a PDR
specialist can usually repair these dents rather easily and return the
panel to its original condition as long as the vehicle’s paint finish
is not damaged.
