Dents Removed on a Tesla X with PDR

Teslas are very cool Electric Vehicles (EV). They are fast, eye-catching,  eco-friendly, and loaded with smart technology that make other car owners jealous! If you own a Tesla, you know that there was a lot of thought put into investing in this car therefore, you want to take good care of it. So when you get a ding or dent on your car, it can be frustrating. Good news is, if the damage is not severe, there is an option of removing dents and dings through paintless dent repair, or known as PDR.

What is PDR?

PDR is the best technique when repairing minor dings, body creases, or dents on your car. It doesn’t matter if the dent was from a baseball bat, hailstorm, a runaway shopping cart or from a car door, PDR would be able to remove it. The process of paintless dent repair is much simpler than taking your car to an auto body shop as it does not require drilling or body fillers; therefore, making it cost-effective. With PDR, the certified technician will massage the dent out from the back panel of the car, where the dent is located, with specialized tools or use the glue-pulling method to repair it. Through the process of PDR, there is no need for repainting either since the original paint will still be intact. 

If your Tesla has a dent, it is important to find a PDR company with a dent technician that is highly skilled in working with electric vehicles, like The Dent Guy in Rochester, New York. Experience with PDR on EVs is necessary because there is a lot of voltage. You have to be extra cautious when working with EVs to reduce the potential of getting shocked. Most PDR technicians will receive extra training, such as the EV Technician Training to ensure that the technician understands about working on EVs safely. Tesla have anywhere from 350-375 volts running through their system. As a rule of thumb, just 50 volts is enough to drive a potentially lethal current through your body. 

How PDR was performed on the Tesla X

A 2016 Tesla Model X was brought in with a few dents on the lower portion of the quarter panel and behind the bumper cover. Upon inspection, Dan, The Dent Guy owner, notices that the hatch, tailgate and charging port are all misaligned with the panel because of the bumper replacement. To restore the panel to its original condition, extreme glue pulling repair (GPR) was the best choice. 

This has become a popular method in the PDR industry because it utilizes a larger surface area on the exterior of the painted panel to repair the dents, dings, or creases. By using this method for repairing damage on panels it creates faster, cleaner, and less intrusive repairs.  Dan was able to restore the Tesla 99% back to its original condition using glue pull repair.
