A relatively new phenomenon is a process called a ‘paintless dent repair’. This method is only possible if you are fortunate to have a dented area where the paint surface has not been broken. The bodywork repairer can often remove the dent and bring the surface back to its original contours so well that it is impossible to see where the repair has been done.
Large shallow dents (such as on a roof or a bonnet) where the surface is unbroken can be removed using a special tool that looks a little like a plumber’s plunger. This is attached to the middle of the dent and the surface is ‘sucked’ or pushed into lying flat. Sometimes, this type of dent is ‘popped’ back into position with the use of a heat gun. Naturally, this type of repair demands specialist skills, so it is best left to an AutoMend approved bodywork technician.
Another method employed by bodywork technicians is to use a piece of equipment to ‘massage’ the area around a dent. This can result in the dent popping out with excellent results.
If the paint surface is scratched, you will need a painted repair, which will probably be more expensive and take longer than a paintless one. The same methods of removing dents will be employed, and then surface will need to be prepared, possibly filled, and then painted and the paint cured, which is partly why this type of repair takes longer.
Have you ever wondered how the repairer matches the paint to make the repair invisible? There are thousands of variants of paint colours, each car manufacturer has a slightly different variant. If your vehicle was sold within the UK, and is not too old, the repairer will be able to refer to a unique ‘paint code’ for your particular model, which identifies the specific paint that was originally used. Some bodyshops have paint matching capabilities to use the paint code to make up bespoke batches of paint to match the original finish – even down to pearlised or metallic finishes.
