Door Panel Edge Dent Removed with PDR

One of the most annoying things for a car owner in Rochester, NY, is to come back to a parked car and find a dent or ding on the door. You’ll typically find this damage in parking lots, where other cars park too close to yours and ding your door as they swing open theirs.

Similar dents and dings can occur when you swing your door open and hit something you didn’t see was there. You may also have a minor accident at an intersection with a cyclist or biker who dings your car door.

Dents and dings on your car are never good, but door panel edge dents are particularly difficult to remove, especially if you want paintless dent repair (PDR).

What is PDR?

If you didn’t already know, paintless dent repair or PDR is the latest and best type of dent removal technique. It restores your car to its original form, unlike conventional dent repair, which uses scraping, filling, and repainting to repair dents and dings.

When it comes to door panel edge dent removal, you need the most skilled and experienced PDR technician because these dents can be quite tricky. An amateur or inexperienced PDR technician may crack or damage the original paint during the restoration process.

You need someone like Dan “the Dent Guy” in Rochester, NY. With over 30 years of automotive experience, he is the most skilled and experienced PDR professional in New York.

The PDR Process for Door Panel Edge Dent

First, the car is cleaned to remove excess dirt and grime. Then, Dan uses a special PDR UV light to highlight the damage on your door panel. It reveals every small discrepancy on the panel. Depending on your car’s model, Dan will find the appropriate access behind the damaged door panel and start working.

He uses the best PDR tools, some heat, and his hands to skillfully and strategically push and pull the panel in the right places. He makes sure that no matter how tricky the door panel edge dent is, the paint doesn’t crack, costing you your chance for PDR.

Dan’s immense experience and PDR skills come in handy in such situations. Once he is done, your door panel is completely restored, and no one can find any trace of damage, tampering, or repairs.

The Benefits of PDR

Unlike conventional dent repair from traditional auto body shops, PDR has many benefits for you and your car.

  • Quick Service

PDR only takes a few hours, not days. For most dents and dings, including door panel edge dents, you can drive off with your car on the same day.

  • Pocket-Friendly Restoration

Since there are no material expenses like paint and filler, PDR costs you less than conventional dent repair, which may require you to repaint and work on adjacent body panels.

  • Retains Originality and Resale Value

PDR does not tamper with the original factory paintwork of your car. It simply restores the damage on the panel. With PDR, your car retains its originality and resale value.
