Paintless Dent Repair for a Bumper Dent


No matter how much you care for your car, bumper dents are just unavoidable. Whenever your car is out in public, there is always a risk that it would suffer dents and dings. A kid could bump into your car’s bumper with a shopping cart, a distracted driver could hit your car, or you might hit your car while reversing; these situations are inevitable and frustrating for car owners.

How Can PDR Fix Bumper Dents?

Paintless Dent Repair is a method used by technicians to repair car damage in the most efficient way. It utilizes a method that ensures the integrity of your vehicle, maintaining its exterior finish. Your bumper’s original factory paint will not be compromised with PDR, preserving the value of your car.

The bumper dents in your car’s bodywork are removed by reshaping the panel. Our certified technicians use special tools to press and massage the damaged bumper without the need to paint or fill the dent. The metal is pushed out to its original shape, repairing your car’s bumper while maintaining the original manufacturer’s paint finish.

What Kind of Bumper Dents Can PDR Fix?

PDR is most effective for minor dents, where the paint is intact, providing efficient results. You might be wondering what kind of bumper dents can PDR fix. Here is a helpful list that can assist you:

  • Minor Dents Due to Collisions

Collisions and door dings usually cause minor dents, mostly affecting the bumper of your car. Whether you accidentally park your car too close to another vehicle or bump your trolley into the bumper when loading your groceries, bumper dents are just bound to happen. Although this is alarming, as long as your paint does not have a crack and the impact of the scratch is not severe, PDR can repair them in the best possible way.

We can categorize these minor dents into round dents and car dings.

  • Round Dents

Round dents are the most common type of dents caused by the hitting of small objects like hail, rocks, or small balls striking into your car’s bumper. These damages have less damage, and PDR techniques can fix them quickly. They are not only easier to perform, but also cheaper.

  • Car Dings

Parking lot accidents usually cause car dings. They can be deeper or cause more severe damage to your car’s bumper, but as long as there is no damage to the paint, Paintless Dent Removal techniques will pop out the dent from your bumper back to its original shape.

Hail Damage Repair 2021


In today’s episode, Jack is going live on Instagram and is working on doing some hail damage repairs on this 2015 Toyota Tundra pick-up truck that came in from a body shop. The reason why the car was taken to a body shop was that it was keyed on the side and the owner was looking to have it repainted.


However, while the technicians were preparing the car for the painting process, they found a few dings and dents but it was only after washing the vehicle did they realize that there was severe hail damage on the car. Under the PDR lights, Jack shows us the extent of the damage and while the dents are mostly tiny, they are a lot of them. From the roof rail to the actual roof, the car was covered with dents but the body shop was more interested in getting the dents out from the panels that they were going to fix.


So, Jack explains that he will be working on the entire right hand side of the vehicle, especially on the roof rail.

Auto Hail Damage Estimating Explained

Auto Hail Damage Estimating Explained

Auto Hail Damage Estimating Explained

In today’s video, Jack takes us through a hail damage estimate for a 2015 Honda Fit that came into the Sioux Falls Dent Repair shop. As you can see, the damage is quite severe and even caused the paint in the roof to crack in multiple spots.

For the customer to claim their insurance, we needed to take photographs and even mark off the severely damaged areas. The car itself, as you can see, is covered in “oversized” dents which are indicated with “X” marks. In terms of size, an oversized dent is any dent that is larger than a half dollar coin.

The roof and hood were written as replacement pieces because of the severity of the damage and that is what we used to write up our estimate. The dents are all across the body of the car and has even caused the paint to crack in many spots. In some spots, the glass will also have to be removed and reinstalled once the job is complete.

Unfortunately, once the estimate is made, the car is going to be a complete loss for the customer and they will have the option to either get reimbursed or buy it back and get it fixed afterwards. The customer also has a tow hitch attached to the front of the vehicle which means that it will have to be removed and will be included in the eventual cost. We also came across a hairline dent between the side mirror and the frame of the vehicle which will need work. Also, there are signs of previous PDR work on this car, but it isn’t complete and isn’t a good job either.

So, that is how we at Sioux Falls Dent Repair go about writing up an estimate for hail damaged car. We mark off the larger dents and any extreme damage, we take to a body shop for repair or replacement.

Hail Damage Repair Tools We Use

Hail Damage Repair Tools We Use

In today’s video, we are going to check out some of the hail damage tools that we use here at Sioux Falls Dent Repair. We will be looking at some of the pushing tools or hail rods that we use to get out all kinds of hail damage. While most of these tools can be used for all kinds of dent repair, they have twin tips which is specifically designed for hail damage repairs.

As you can see on the first tool, we can attach two different sized tips so that we can take out all the damage from a panel without having to change tools constantly. The tips are interchangeable and all depend on the size, depth, and severity of the dent itself. The bigger tip is the R4 from and we use a Cherry Hard Tip on it to get out the initial damage. On the other side of the hail rod we have a sharper tip that is available on and is used for fine tuning and completing the job. There are companies that have even taken it even further and produced a four sided hail rod for holding four different tips but we haven’t gotten around to using one of those, yet.

The next rod is not only one of the first ones we got, but it is also one of the best ones we have in the shop. It is called the 36-inch Hail Interchangeable Tip Rod from and it is all made form metal and is extremely durable. Going up from there, we also use the 60-inch Hail Interchangeable Tip Rod which is exactly the same – just bigger.

Tools Made From Carbon Fiber?!

The first rod that we saw is made entirely from carbon fiber and is available on The one we use is the Hail Rod and it comes in three separate pieces at 12-inches, 26-inches, and 46-inches. When we put the rod together, it measures 7-foot and gives us access to all parts of a damaged panel with ease. However, they do sell extensions to make the rod even longer. While it might not make sense for most to have a 10-foot hail rod, it is actually extremely helpful when you’re looking for extra leverage on larger vehicles.

Carbon Tech also has some grips on offer which are made from aluminum and make using the rod easier. Another great handle option from the brand is the T Handle which allows us to use both hands for some of the more stubborn dents that we have to deal with. We also use the T Handle to twist and push out the damage from tighter spaces where the entire tip head will not fit. Also, when dealing with tight spaces like truck beds, the twin tip head can be replaced with a single tip head – also available from Carbon Tech.

Another attachment you can get is the Single Bend Pick Tool and is used for taking out the smaller dents. There is also a Double Bend Pick Tool and they are great for getting under the roof of a car and pushing out any damage. Lastly, we also have a Whale Tail extension that lets us get out dents from tiny spaces.




If you have any queries or questions give us a call or text at 605-250-1023  we’ll be happy to chat with you.
