Paintless Dent Repair Myths
Do it yourself Paintless Dent Repair is easy.
No it‘s not. It requires training, skill, and experience. There are many people that say they are PDR technicians who crack, flake or create ripples in the paint and metal.
Dry ice will repair my dings.
99% of the time the dry ice method doesn’t work. In fact it can actually harm the paints integrity, causing it to de-laminate or fracture.
Scratch repair and dent repair are the same thing.
No. A ding is a small dent, which can often be repaired with Paintless Dent Repair. A scratch is an actual break in the surface of the clear coat or paint, requiring traditional body shop techniques, or touch up paint.
