Our Sioux Falls Door Ding Removal Process

Sioux Falls Door Ding Removal

Because performing PDR can be a bit tricky, Sioux Falls door ding removal is best left to the experts. Here are the steps on how to perform PDR for door ding removal.

Step One – Evaluate The Dent

Before making any repairs, Sioux Falls door ding removal PDR technicians must first analyze the dents and dings. Every dent or ding is examined closely and at the same time, the PDR tech will determine how to reach the sheet metal from behind. After identifying how the repair will be performed, they will then choose an area to begin. A suction-mounted LED is used to help the tech in seeing the complexities of the dent or ding. It is best if Sioux Falls door ding removal is done in an area where there is no direct sunlight.

Step Two – Push Out The Sheet Metal

The next step is to push out the dent or ding using long metal rods known as PDR tools. These special tools can also reach out into small gaps located between two panels. By using these tools, PDR techs do not need to remove panels. However, if the dent or ding is located in a difficult area, then it may need to be disassembled. The techs of Sioux Falls door ding removal will use these PDR tools to gently push the dent upwards again and again until the metal stretches and returns back into its original position. This might sound like our job is done, but we won’t settle for anything less than factory fresh!

Step Three – Make the Surface Is Even

After pushing out the dent, we make sure that it’s even along the entire surface. To accomplish this, Sioux Falls door ding removal techs use a rubber mallet. He will gently tap the affected area until it has the same texture as the rest of the body. Afterward, we apply a few more touch ups to restore its original finish. This achieved by making use of a wet-sanding together with a high-speed polisher. We continue doing this until the surface is perfectly smooth.

Keep in mind that the PDR process for Sioux Falls door ding removal takes a lot of patience and a sharp eyesight to quickly recognize the changes being made during each step. Sometimes the overall process has to be redone in order to completely remove the dent or ding. These skills can only be obtained through years of hard work and practice. For this reason, we recommend leaving dent repair to the professionals.
