Here is a definition. Paintless dent repair is also known as paintless dent removal. It describes a method of removing minor dents from the body of your vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using paintless dent repair as long as the paint surface is intact. Paintless dent repair may be used on both aluminum and steel panels.
Paintless dent repair was invented back in 1960. We weren’t yet a flicker in Grandpa Embry’s eye! The inventor Oskar Flaig used a hammer handle to push out a small dent, so he would need to apply less filler before painting. These days the most common PDR techniques utilize metal rods and body picks to push out the dents from the underside of the body panel.
