You have probably already heard that repair / removal of the paintless bump is a low-cost alternative to more expensive body shops. But the big question in the mind is whether your vehicle is compatible with these methods of tooth removal. Below is a checklist that will tell you if your vehicle is a candidate for RDP.
Size and Status of the Tooth
To begin, take a tape measure and, if possible, a digital camera. Examine the bumps on your vehicle and first inspect them for pain damage and / or cracking. If the paint has been broken, the repair / removal of the paintless bump will not work for your vehicle.
However, if the painting is intact, take your tape measure to see the size of the bumpy area. If it is longer than one foot, it may not be a good candidate for PDR. * NOTE * If you have a digital camera, take pictures of damaged areas and e-mail them to the technician via the company's website. With size information they can make the call for you whether or not they may be able to help you.
Age and condition of the vehicle
If the vehicle is older than 15 to 20 years, the car may not be a good fit for tooth repair without paint / removal. The reason is that, over time, the paint can become brittle due to cooking in the sun and peeling during the PDR procedure.
However, if the vehicle is new and in good condition, as long as the tooth is not in an area that has already been repaired by a bodybuilder, your vehicle may be compatible with the repair / l '. removal of the bump without painting.
Location of the tooth (s)
the bumps disappear, this does not mean that the dentist can remove any bumps imaginable. As mentioned earlier, if the tooth is located on a previous body repair, trying out PDR could have disastrous results. If the tooth is too close to the edge of the panel, most of the time it would disqualify your vehicle for repairs.
In the rare cases where a tooth is located above a spacer or in a difficult place of access, the dentist performing the repair / disassembly of the paintless bump may be able to Remove the bump as much as possible, greatly improving the look of the vehicle – but the bump may not be perfectly smooth and completely removed. But, again, this only happens in rare cases.
Paintless dent removal: is it right for you?
As you can see, as long as your car, truck or sports vehicle is not older than 15 years, the paint is not cracked or damaged, and the bumps are not too big or located in the wrong place, a bumpless repair / disassembly technician should be able to help you repair the appearance and luster of your vehicle.
Whenever possible, take pictures of the dents, take action and send this information by e-mail to the mogul repair company so that they can help you assess the damage. If this is not possible, call the company to make an appointment with your vehicle, or ask them if they are a mobile dentist who might come to see you.
