This method of PDR dent removal used special tools to push the dent out. These tools were needed to do an excellent repair because of the way the door was dented.

You will see why the glue pull method and the hot water and pulling out the dent type of repair won’t work.

When removing a dent like this one, you have to know how to properly move the metal and understand the “flow” of the metal. This is needed to achieve a flat repair.

This damage had what we call crowns or high spots at the top and sides of the dent. These hold a lot of pressure and need to be pushed back down and blended back into the dent. Once that is done, then pushing of the dent is much easier and has much better results.

You will see how by just pushing out the dent without first releasing the pressure of the crowns, limited progress was made. But, just by knocking down the high spots actually “removed” a lot of the dent without even having to push or pull it out.

After bringing down the area around the dent, I then was able to continue pushing out the dent with a couple of PDR tools. One more blunt tip with tape for a soft push and then another sharp tip tool for more fine detail pushing.

In this dent removal, I also used a few knockdowns with different tips and a few different hammers. These ranged from a softer rubber for a large and softer hit. Then moving to sharper plastic type tips for more fine detail hits.
