Big Dent Removal
Today, we’ll be taking a look at a 2016 Chevrolet Equinox in need of a big dent removal, this has a pretty bad door dent in it. As you can see, the damage is quite severe and starts all the way near the top of the door and goes through the body line. There is even a bit of damage towards the bottom of the door which we will have to get rid of.
Starting Off, Cold Glue
To get some of the dent out from the door, we will be using a product called Cold Glue and it is available from Glexo. The Cold Glue tab is fastened to the Slide Hammer that we use here in the Sioux Falls Dent Repair shop and the tab is then applied to the damaged area. By simply pulling the Slide Hammer back and forth a few times, we can get some of the damage out.
Next, we switch over to hot glue pull tabs – something used quite commonly in the PDR world. The tabs we’re using for this job is from Black Plague and it is from the Ice Tab series. We’ll be using the Elim A Dent glue gun with Cam Auto Glue to pull out some of the remaining damage. The glue takes a little longer to dry, but it offers a better and stronger pull. To pull on the glue tab, we’ll be using the KECO K-Bar which gives us a lot of leverage when it comes to pulling on tabs and getting out dents.
With the help of the PDR lights, you can see how all that pulling got rid of the majority of that large dent in the door. Once we finish working on the door from the front, we can then remove the door, door panel and start pushing out the damage from the back. We also have to remove the glass, the reason being is this glass is special to this type of vehicle, find out what’s different about this glass by Clicking Here. After we remove the door panel, we gain a lot more access to the back of the door panel and this lets us push out the remaining damage with our tools.
After removing the door and placing it under the PDR lights, we can see how much of the damage is still left and we can then figure out the kind of tools we would require for the job. Moving over to the lower side of the door, we have to hammer down the damage with a special tool. It takes a multiple hits and quite a bit of time to get the damage out 100%, but it is still faster than taking the car to a body shop.
