Hassle-Free Dent Repair

A dent on your car is always an ugly site. It makes other road users view you as a reckless driver even when that’s not the case for like 90% of the time. This is why you need to get it repaired as soon as possible and there is no better way to do it than with extreme paintless dent repair. This is the most convenient and easiest way to repair your car’s dent without having to visit a body shop or filing an insurance claim. Here is how you do it on a 2012 Buick Verano carrying a dent on the rear section just above the bumper, as explained by Sioux Falls Dent Repair’s lead PDR technician Jack Bucknell.

Assess the Damage

The first thing the PDR certified technician will have to do before anything is to assess the extent of the damage. This will help determine a few things; one, how deep does the dent go, secondly, if PDR is possible. In this case, the kind of dents that cannot be fixed using PDR include deep dents, dents near edges, and dents that have creases. The last reason for assessing the damage is to determine what approach would yield the best results.

Gain Access

After assessing the extent of damage, the PDR certified technician will have to make sure they have unrestricted access to the damaged area. Most of the time they will need access through the backside of the dent and for this case, they will have to pop the trunk lid open and remove some of the interior as well as the tail light to reach the dented area. They will also have to lower the bumper for a cleaner, smoother job and ensure the use of appropriate tools for this process to prevent any damage to the screws and clips that might make it hard to return them.

Get A Heat Gun

Direct heat of around a hundred and sixty degrees towards the area you intend to fix. The heat is intended to soften the surface and make it malleable so that returning it to its original position can be easy. In addition to that, it prevents any damage to the surface as a PDR certified technician tries to manipulate it.

Perform the Repair

The PDR technician position tools on the dent’s backside and can apply a special glue on the front of the damaged area to ensure equal pressure is applied to the front and behind the area. With the heat ray’s help, slowly manipulate the dent’s outer edge until it bends back level with the surface. After slow and methodical work around the dent’s outer edge, the dent’s size will gradually shrink until it completely disappears.

Piece It Back Together

Once the PDR certified technician have finished the dent repair and are satisfied with the outcome, they can start returning everything to where it was from restoring the bumper and tail lights then return the interior panels

Extreme Paintless Dent Repair

Extreme Paintless Dent Repair

Here we have our lead technician, Jack Bucknell with us at Sioux Falls Dent Repair, Showing you some damage we repaired in this 2012 Buick Verano. This damage is quite extreme for paintless dent repair but with the right tools and enough patience this damage can be worked out and removed using the Paintless Dent Repair method.


Accessing The Damage

We start off this repair by taking the vehicle apart to gain access to the backside. First accessing the trunk area then removing multiple components. We first take out the spare tire cover along with some interior trim panels. Then we remove the tail light assembly follows by lowering the bumper cover on the left hand side. We have to lower the bumper down in order to gain access to the bottom edge so that we can better work the edge of the damage out.

Tools Used

Multiple tools ranging from Ultra dent tools, Dent Craft tools, Dent Dials all for pushing. We then use knockdowns from VIP, Edgy Tools and more. For our hammer selections we are using the Daniel Gromm 144 from Carbon Tech PDR Tools, we also use the Shane Jacks Signature Series Jackhammer fit with tips from Edgy tools, specifically using the Knockers tip in multiple sizes.

Things Are Heating Up

Some technicians as well as ourselves also use a Map gas or propane torch as well for heat, but with this damage requiring a constant heat, plus we are in a shop environment so we have power to run  a heat gun, this is the best course of action. Also the Get a Grip arm with a heat gun was an absolute must for this repair.

Finish Time

Time to put the vehicle back together for the customer. Then we test all of the components manually to make sure they all work. A Pre Diagnostic computer scan is than ran on the vehicle. This insures all of the vehicle components are working after the repairs are made and everything is put back together correctly and that the computer systems are communicating correctly.

This repair was made in just ONE DAY. We started on this repair in the morning and finished in the afternoon. The customer was only without their vehicle for a day for this repair making it quick and simple for them. No need to go to a body shop for this type of damage. No hassles of having body work, repainting, bondo and then later sand scratches showing up or color miss matches like with a body shop. This damage does not register on a Carfax History Report when choosing Paintless Dent Repair and will not devalue your vehicle like a body shop repair will. There will no be indication there was ever damage to your vehicle with this type of repair method.
