Paintless Repair How Does It Work

Paintless repair is a method of fixing the auto body that has shallow dents and intact paint. The dent experts use specialized tools to access the backside of the damaged panel and reshape it to its original form. This method is simple and costs less than conventional methods involving paint as there is no need to add body filler and refinish. It works only if the dent or damage is not too complex.

Paintless Dent Repair Do It Yourself

It is recommended that you don't attempt the dent repair yourself if you lack the experience and proper tools. The results may be unsatisfactory and there is also the risk of voiding the warranty & rejection of insurance claims by the insurance company. There are other less invasive methods given below that you may try at home. These are as follows:
  • Use Plunger: Stick the plunger over the dent and pull it outwards to pop the dent out. This method works sometimes.
  • Use Boiling Water: This trick works only on plastic panels. Pour boiling water on the dent & force it back into shape.
  • Use Dry Ice: Try rubbing dry ice over the dent. The cold may contract the metal popping it out. Use gloves for safety.
  • Use Hair Dryer: First, heat the dented area with a hairdryer and then blow cold air on it using a compressed air can.
  • Use Specialty Tools: There are several tools available in the market designed specifically for removing dents from autobody.
  • Metal Rod & Knockdown: Hold the underside of the dent with a metal rod and start tapping with rubber tap down tool.
