What is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)?
Paintless dent repair is an innovative car restoration technique that uses cutting-edge tools to remove minor dents and dings from a vehicle while retaining the original or factory paint. The PDR solution is eco-friendly and can be completed in less time.
An automobile expert will apply pressure accordingly to the dented or affected area. In the process, the technician gradually manipulates and pushes back the dent or ding, restoring the dented area to its original shape without harming the vehicle’s factory finish. Therefore, repainting your car after removing the dents or dings won’t be necessary.
