PDR involves the use of specialized tools to apply pressure to the backside of the panel to remove surface imperfections. Damage may also be repaired by bonding a “tab” or other device to the exterior of the panel and pulling the dent from the topside. By using either of these techniques, our certified technicians able to restore panel appearance, thus eliminating the need for refinishing the panel’s surface area.
