4 Steps United Hail Pros Uses to Fix Your Colorado Hail Damaged Car
While paintless dent repair is anything but easy, there are a few basic steps involved in fixing the damage that we take to ensure complete and total success.
Step 1: Analyzing the Dent and Extent of the Damage
In order to be successful, we first mush thoroughly inspect and analyze the dent pattern on your car. This involves figuring out how deep each dent is and a how we will reach behind the metal in your car to tap out the damage.
Step 2: Pushing the Metal Out to Remove the Divets and Dings
After formulating a plan of attack, one of our technicians will likely use long metal rods to reach into tiny gaps between panels and other holes to push the dent upwards. This method is the key to preventing the need to remove entire panels. Should we come across a very stubborn dent, however, some disassembly may be required.
Step 3: Spreading the Surface of the Dented Areas
After a dent forms the metal’s thickness becomes inconsistent in the working area creating a “mushroom” effect around the dented area. For this reason, our Tech will use a plastic “tap down tool” and a soft blow rubber hammer to tap the ring to be flush.
Step 4: Polishing the Repaired Area
The repaired dent could result in inconsistencies in the clear coat from the PDR process. To return the paint on your car to a lovely “like new” look we use wet-sanding and polishing; this ensures a wonderfully smooth repaired finish.
