PDR is a collection of techniques for removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle, A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, usually if there is paint damage PDR may be unsuitable.
The most common practical use for PDR is the repair of hail damage, door dings, and minor body creases.
The PDR techniques can also be applied to help prepare the damaged panel for paint. Such applications are referred to as “push to paint” or “improve to paint”.
PDR involves placing specially designed metal rods and body picks behind the dent. Our technicians use the tools to skilfully manipulate and lift the unwanted dent back to its original position.
PDR is a highly specialised art that takes months to learn and many years to master to the highest standard.
The technology of PDR has been around for many years, and has become popularly adopted for such purposes as lease return, auction preparation, rental car maintenance, and increasingly, public vehicle repair.
