This video explains the repair of a minor dent from a brush with shopping carts, car doors, and golf clubs. The result is a slight depression or bulge in the surface of your vehicle. During a small dent repair, the technician will first use a few tools to remove as much paint from the dent as possible to see exactly where to start working on the metal underneath the damaged area.
Once the technician removes the paint, they will begin working on the metal. The technician will start with a hammer and dolly combination to push out the metal at the center of the dent while also pulling it towards him at an angle.
This process helps to stretch out any creases or bends in your vehicle’s body panel and ensures it returns to its original shape.
When this step is complete, a small dent repair technician will use a battering ram to push out any remaining dents or creases in your vehicle’s body panels. The technician will work slowly around all four sides of your dent until its removal. The technician can apply touch-up paint over any remaining marks or scratches but may apply two coats of primer to ensure maximum adhesion.
