Q & A
What About Dings and Dents Located Under Braces?
Most of the dents found under braces can be accessed and removed. First, the adhesive between the brace and the metal must be cut loose. To do this, a thin putty knife is slid between the adhesive and the metal. Once the adhesion is removed, a thin hand tool can be used to repair the dent.
What Percentage of Dings and Dents are Repairable?
Percentages generally speaking, 80 – 90% of the minor dings and dents found on a vehicle are repairable.
What Dings and Dents Cannot Be Repaired?
Most dings and dents can be made to look "better". However, there are some problem repairs.
Here is a list of some problem areas:
Deep Dents - On very deep dings and dents, the metal is often pushed too deep for a complete repair.
Dents Near the Edge of Panels - Dents found near the edge of body panels or right on a seam make access impossible.
Dings and Dents with Deep Creases - Usually, only a skilled dent repair technician can repair creased dents, depending on the severity of the crease. In many cases a 100% repair is not possible.
How Large of a Dent Can Be Repaired With Paintless Dent Repair?
The most important aspect of paintless dent repair is not the diameter but the depth. Often very large, shallow dents can be removed.
