What is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)?
Paintless Dent Repair and Removal, or PDR is the art of removing dents and dings from auto panels without the use of fillers and repainting.
PDR is possible due to "memory" in today's auto metals. It is the memory that gives cars their many curves, lines, and aerodynamic features. This memory also makes those unsightly dents and dings we get from parking lots and hail storms.
PDR dent professionals use these physical properties of today's flexible metals to massage the memory back to the way it was. After accessing the backside of the damaged panel, the technician is aided by very graphic lighting, enabling him or her to significantly improve or fully restore the panel to pre-accident condition.
