PDR Techniques

The basic method of PDR utilizes a metal rod and a body pick to push cavities of an indent back into position from the inside of a damaged car panel. Glue pulling is another common method that is used from the outer side of a car panel. This method involves gluing plastic tabs to the damaged area, which are used to pull out the dent. In either case, the right method depends on the size and extent of the damage. However, for any of these methods to be completely successful, the car must have no damage to the original finish of the vehicle.

For both of these methods, the dent can be fine-tuned by tapping the area to remove any high spots in an attempt to make the metal surface flat. Either aluminum or steel panels can be repaired, but successful PDR requires a trained hand and skilled technician to get perfect.
