DOES DRY ICE WORK? NO! PLACING DRY ICE ON A DENT WILL SHRINK THE METAL ENOUGH TO REMOVE A DENT IF THE METAL HAS BEEN STRETCHED. IN CERTAIN INSTANCES, HEATING AND RAPID COOLING OF METAL IS USED TO SHRINK “OIL CANNED” OR SEVERELY WARPED PANELS BUT THIS PROCESS USUALLY REQUIRES THOSE PANELS TO BE REPAINTED.
WILL MY DENTS POP BACK IN EXTREME HEAT OR COLD? NO! THE PDR PROCESS PERMANENTLY REMOVES THE DENT BY COMPRESSING THE EFFECTED METAL WITH SLIGHT PUSHES FROM THE UNDERSIDE OF THE PANEL. IF A REPAIRED DENT DOES NOT POP BACK WITH THE APPLICATION OF GENTLE PRESSURE; THEN IT WILL NEVER JUST “POP BACK” LATER.
WHY DON’T I JUST GET THAT “POPS A DENT” KIT AND FIX IT MYSELF? BAD IDEA! ATTEMPTING TO REPAIR DENTS YOURSELF USUALLY RESULTS IN MAKING THE DENT HARDER TO REPAIR OR WORSE… IMPOSSIBLE TO REPAIR.
CAN’T YOU JUST GLUE SOMETHING TO THE DENT AND POP IT OUT? NOT THAT EASY! DENTS DON’T TYPICALLY POP BACK OUT. GLUE PULLING IS A COMMON PRACTICE AMONG DENT-TECNICIANS BUT IT IS A VERY TEDIOUS TASK; THAT TAKES YEARS OF EXPERIENCE TO PERFECT AND EVEN THEN USUALLY TAKES 10-20 POPS TO COMPLETELY REMOVE A DENT.
IF I LEAVE MY CAR IN THE HOT SUN WON’T IT SHRINK MY DENTS OUT? NO! HEAT AND COLD HAVE VERY LITTLE EFFECT ON THE METAL IN NORMAL CLIMATES. THE HOT SUN WON’T CAUSE THE METAL TO EXPAND ENOUGH TO REMOVE MOST DENTS.
WON’T CLAIMING HAIL DAMAGE ON MY VEHICLE RUIN MY VEHICLE HISTORY REPORT AND HURT THE VALUE OF MY CAR? NO! MOST MAJOR INSURANCE COMPANIES ACTUALLY RECOMMEND PDR OVER TRADITIONAL PAINT AND BODY WORK! AND, SINCE IT IS NOT REPORTED AS A COLLISION, IT IS NOT USUALLY INCLUDED ON THE VEHICLE HISTORY REPORT.
AREN’T YOU GUYS SUPPOSED TO FIX ALL THE DENTS ON MY CAR? NOT ALWAYS! INSURANCE COMPANIES ONLY PAY FOR CLAIM RELATED DAMAGE. LARGE UNRELATED PRIOR DAMAGE IS USUALLY LEFT UNTOUCHED AND IS NOT PAID FOR ON HAIL DAMAGE CLAIMS.
