A professional will tell you that PDR is a less invasive process, however, depending upon the type of damage that is to be repaired, there are some risks that must be kept in mind. The severity of the damage is also another factor that comes into play.
For example, a very deeply stretched dent could cause the paint to crack. This risk increases when combined with additional factors including the use of paints with metallic flake or an older vehicle being exposed to harsh conditions, repainted panels and of course, inexperienced technicians.
Other risks are often associated with a method of repair called “glue pulling.” This method is effective in repairing areas where the technician doesn’t have direct access to the back side of the damage and any standardized tool can’t be utilized to push from behind. With glue pulling, the painted surface is pulled from the outside using special PDR tools such as slide hammers, mini lifters, and glue tabs.
