Sharp Car Dents

Sharp car dent

Many car park dings/ shopping trolley dents can be very sharp, some even removing or fracturing the paint.

The upper part of a wheelie bin can cause quite sharp dramatic indentations, also pellets fired from an airgun or BB's can sometimes cause unrepairable sharp dents.

In very strong winds objects are blown against vehicles with great force causing sometimes very nasty sharp dents, wooden fences for example.

Very sharp dents at a single point of impact are more prone to damaging the paintwork & in some cases splitting the metal of the bodywork.

Sharp dents that also contain a lateral or vertical component & go beyond what could be called a deep scratch often incur metal stretching & creasing

Access Issues

The "swage" or car body lines of a vehicle stand proud from the panel and are often the first point of impact when the vehicle is struck. Many people believe that these dents cannot be repaired however an experienced Dent Specialist can achieve superb results with this type of dent.

With a sharp dent the metal panel is always very stretched, sometimes beyond it's limits. The PDR Technicians' role is to use his specialised tools to shrink the dent and surrounding area back to size. This technique takes great skill and many hundreds of hours "hands on" experience to perfect. Even with many years experience, sharp deep dents are always the most difficult dents for a Dentmaster to repair.

To have any chance of successfully repairing a sharp dent the Dent Repair Technician must have very good access. To repair any sharp dent on a panel from a distance is virtually impossible to do. If you think how much direct force was needed to push the metal inwards to such a degree, requires even more force to push it back out. Many sharp dents in the centre of large panels are unrepairable because there is simply too much give in the metal for it to be returned to its original state.

More Info

Strong areas of car body panels ie, the swage line/ body lines are generally quite strong and with good access a Trained Dent Specialist has a fighting chance of a successful repair. In some cases however, even with good access the dent is just too severe.

In cases such as these, the PDR Technician will recommend a car body shop for repair.

Like all dent repair work via PDR the ease & level of success of repair can be dictated by the level & quality of access the PDR technician has to use his tools & skill. Such as internal strength braising, sound proofing may also be obstacles to access, although the latter is many cases can be removed.
