The Art of Paintless Dent Repair in Restoring Your Car

Paintless dent repair (PDR) is the latest method of repairing dents through restoration. It offers excellent solutions for your dents, dings, and hail damage repair in Rochester, New York. Instead of repairing it the conventional way like traditional body shops, PDR restores your car.

However, there is an art to restoring your car with PDR, which is why you should always opt for experienced, PDR-certified technicians like The Dent Guy.

Paintless Dent Repair in Restoring Your Car

Unlike conventional methods, the PDR process involves no scrapping, filling, or repainting body parts. First, the certified technician cleans your car to remove excess dust and debris. Then, they use specialized PDR UV lights to examine the dents and dings.

They carefully plan their approach and use PDR tools and techniques like the push and pull techniques, to restore the damage and bring your car to its original, undamaged form.

This careful, artistic approach offers plenty of benefits over traditional auto body shops that use conventional methods.

  • Faster Dent Repairs

Instead of waiting for days for the paint to dry, PDR offers dent repair in just a few hours.

  • Less Expensive

Since you aren’t paying for expensive Bondo, filler, or paint, PDR is relatively less expensive than conventional dent repair methods.

  • Greater Resale Value

Because PDR does not scrape your original factory paintwork, your car retains its originality and resale value, which is ideal for any car owner.

  • Superior Results

No dent repair can come close to restoring your car’s original form with its original factory paintwork. So, restoration from PDR offers far superior results.

However, you can’t just perform PDR on your own using dent kits or get PDR services from anywhere in Rochester, New York. You need certified PDR technicians like Dan, The Dent Guy.

Certified technicians are trained to perform PDR correctly, and an experienced technician like Dan has years of experience, which is another important factor.

All dents and dings are different, and experience allows technicians to know exactly how to restore them on various makes and models of vehicles.

Why The Dent Guy?

The Dent Guy is the most skilled and experienced PDR-certified technician you will find in Rochester, New York. This is what allows Dan to restore cars with dents and dings that other PDR technicians may avoid or mess up.

Restoration of a body part is an art that requires the right approach. Otherwise, it can crack the paint, making your car ineligible for PDR. You will need to opt for conventional dent repairs that repaint your car.

You should only trust the right certified technician, which is why The Dent Guy is the ideal solution for PDR.

PDR on a Porsche Boxer 718S

If you own a Porsche, you know that driving it provides a sense of emotional and physical excitement similar to other sports cars. Known for its beauty and speed, a Porsche is also known  for its aesthetics, yet, no matter how much you try to protect it, things can still happen. Such as a scratch, a ding from an unsuspecting runaway shopping car, or a hard crease on the body contour line of the car  caused from an SUV door.

Unexpected damages to your prized vehicle is always disheartening and can leave you feeling frustrated or angry. But don’t worry, depending on the extent of the damage, it can be repaired through the paintless dent repair method, otherwise known as, PDR. 

In Rochester, New York, many people who drive Porsche convertibles such as the Boxer 718S  have been relying on The Dent Guy for paintless dent repair.  With over 30  years of experience in the auto collision industry, The Dent Guy’s owner, Dan Rechichi, has been providing high quality service and dent restoration through paintless dent repair with integrity and fair pricing. Whether you’ve been in a car accident or got door dings, Dan and his certified PDR technicians are on standby to provide quality service. 

What is PDR? 

Paintless dent repair involves a process in which skilled and professional certified technicians massages or deploy certain techniques like glue pulling  to remove dents, dings, and creases from a car without damaging or disturbing the original paint finish. Depending on the extent of the damage, sometimes this process can be quick (same day drop off and pickup) or may take a few days.  When comparing paintless dent repair methods vs  traditional auto body repair, PDR is often preferred due to its non-invasive procedure and lower costs.  Moreover, there is no drilling or paint fillers, making it environmentally friendly.  

If you take your car to the Dent Guy, they have the ability to have the car repair completed onsite and on the spot, which  allows  the clients to pay for their services out-of-pocket without ever reporting it to their insurance company. While PDR is generally able to provide no paint fixes, if you think your Porsche cannot be repaired through PDR, The Dent Guy’s dent doctors can still offer paint to the frames  and structure  of your car. 

How Did the Dent Guy Fix the Porsche Boxer 718s? 

After several attempts to get the Porsche repaired from different auto body shops, (one didn’t even want to touch it), the owner of the Porsche finally was referred to The Dent Guy from an auto collision shop. The dent was caused from a door that had been left open from the owner’s SUV.  The PDR process for this car took several days as Dan had to pull the wheels off to gain better access to the panel where the crease dent was located through the factory hole of the wheel well. 

Gaining access to the dent through a grommet is challenging and in this case, only a highly skilled PDR dent expert could do the job. The customer was very happy and satisfied since the PDR results were almost flawless, minus the minor paint imperfections, cost was affordable and saved the customer from having the side panel of the car repainted.  Take a look at how we did it below. 

So if you got dings or dents on your car and want to know if it can be repaired with PDR, contact us for a free quote.

Double Dented 2018 Jeep Compass | The Dent Guy | Rochester NY

Here is one of The Dent Guy’s latest, a 2018 Jeep Compass customer had a little run-in on the left-front door. This dent goes into the triple folded steel along the edge of the door. There is a second dent in the left-rear door. There is an added degree of difficulty in this repair because the panels have been repainted. A repainted panel restricts a PDR tech from being able to glue pulling because the paint would peel-off. Dan is able to still provide great repair and gives some tech notes in the video.
