Pulling Dents From Back Panel
Paintless dent repair is a dent repair technique that originated in Europe nearly 100 years ago. Elite car manufacturers such as Porsche, Ferrari, and Bentley were the first to start using the technique. Manufacturers needed a quick and effective way to repair dents from new cars that were damaged during assembly.
At this time, this form of dent repair didn’t yet have a name attached to it.
As the technique grew up, so did the tools and education.
Mike Haggard, Master Hail Repair owner, founded a paintless dent repair technician school in California training over 80 technicians.
Like most of the ‘old school’ PDR technicians currently practicing in the United States, Haggard trained as an apprentice under an original 2nd-generation paintless dent repair master. Mike has seen the industry change and improve over the years, both in technique and tools.
In the beginning, fluorescents were used to identify dent imperfections on the surface of the panels. Used for both dent repairs and auto hail repairs. The reflection of the fluorescent lights could be seen on the surface and the lines in the reflection would appear irregular or bent where the surface was dented.
Today, these lights have been reinvented to be more mobile and precise. Instead of fluorescents, they are LED’s. The LED lights have been mounted on a pole with rollers and a striped pattern has been affixed to the light surface. This advancement allows the technician to move the light around the perimeter of the vehicle.
