Sharon asks…

Can doing Paintless Dent Repair(PDR) cause back problems?

Im considering doing PDR, but wonder if anyone experienced back problems? My back hurts sometimes but not all the time.

Brian Blanc answers:

Yes,it can make your back hurt.The body needs to twist and strain in all kings of odd positions in that line of work.I use the long rods and picks too and find myself hurting from over straining and twisting.It helps to use leverage..Try slipping a short metal tube over the user end of the pick to give more length and control.

Mary asks…

So what exactly is a traditional dent repair process?

I’ve been hearing about for moderate dents, paintless dent repair is much cheaper than “traditional body shop repair“. But what the heck is the difference? Isn’t that with both ways, you push the dents out? Whether the dents need repainting or not depends on the paint on the dents, not on the method?

Can anyone tell me process-wise, how different they are?

Brian Blanc answers:

A ‘Traditional Dent Repair’ can in most cases involve the ‘pulling out’ of a dent by various methods and may result in the integrity of the paint being compromised (paint damaged) in the process.

Paintless Dent Repair is what it says on the tin. Removing dents without the requirement of painting the area or car panel. They use special techniques to ease the dent out, slowly, pushing it out from the inside. The skills involved are very technical, but if you find the right technician the results can be astonishing.

Ken asks…

should i buy a hail damaged car? the dealer says that they are using paintless dent repair to fix it.?

Brian Blanc answers:

That is a good way to fix the car w/o having to repaint it. As long as they do a good job & you cannot tell, a repaired car can be a good buy. Remember that it’s only cosmetic damage & as long as the rest of the car is solid, it should be ok.
