When your paint has been damaged in addition to a dent, the conventional repair method is to pull to damaged part of the car as far over to the non-damaged part.
It is common for people to think the two methods of dent repair are the same.
Most people just want their cars fixed and the dent repair completed. They would also like to have a high quality dent repair and spend as little money as possible.
It seems easy to just pop a dent out of a car. There are different factors that decide which way the dents in your car should and can be removed.
ONE: The entire surface must be intact aside from the dent. The surface is likely to rusk if there is not a solid finish on the vehicle.
Two: The metal must be stretch free. Nothing will fall back into place if the metal is stretched, which will leave your car with a big ole’ bump.
How Much Dough are we Talking to Use the Conventional Method?
If coventional dent repair is the method for your car, great skill and time will be needed. Some of the most important steps include –
This method takes much longer than a couple hours
New paint needs to match
The dent needs to be filled in
A final finish will need to be applied once everything has dried
Paintless repair is much less expensive than the conventional method…costing about ten times less. That is why the repair costs are dependent upon how much and what kind of damage your car has seen.
Avoiding Conventional Dent Repair Expense
Frequently, the paintless repair is an option. There can be no damage to the car’s original finish. The process requires a technician to:
Certain tools need to be used to reshape the metal and some panel need to be moved around so the dent can be accessed from behind
Technicians will have the necessary tools needed to re-mold the metal
The technicians will also reach the dent from behind some panels
Some panels will likely be shifted in order the the repair person to get to the dent from different angles, and the metal will be sculpted using some special tools
