2016 Lexus NX Large Door Damage. Door removed fully off vehicle to access lower door and damage without drilling. Reapply corrosion protection and door skin adhesive.
This Mercedes G Wagon spare wheel cover was dented badly but recovered without repainting or filler work. This was done with a specialized process called paintless dent repair (PDR). because the paint wasn't damaged, PDR replaced the need to replace the cover or traditional repair and re-paint.
This is a quick demo of what to expect in a paintless dent repair. This dent was 4-5" on a steel hood that was a deep crease and touched the bodyline. We rebuilt this bodyline and crease back to OEM without changing any oginal paintwork except for a 3 stage paint correction after repairs.
2007 Dodge Ram Long Boxside Large Dent Repair. Extremely large roll buckle and displacement.

Example of a three inch Glue PDR full repair on a sedan roof. Glue pull and knockdown exchange until desired surface is achieved. Note that we have to over extend the sheetmetal to get the lowest and resistant parts of the dents out (Impact points)
Volkswagen GTI 6" lower door bodyline dent lifted with Keco Glue pulling equipment and finised up with some pushing tools from a factory opening.
2015 BMW M4 in Fronzen Black with several dents on the quarter panel. Dents removed with paintless repair. This video shows the how the repair plan can change with exploration for factory access that is usable for paintless dent repair. The location of the dent is very important as the paintless repair technician has to line up several things to make the repair happen. To see what he is doing the we must line up:
- himself, line of sight
- the access opening to the immediate backside of the dent(s)
- the tooling and
- reference lighting
Pulled this bad dent from a concrete column! When I was mobile.

Case study of how an autobody style pulling and tapping method was used to move strong dents. We're going to be clever instead of strong.
This is a dent repair in an akward spot and needed an incredible amount of controlled power to overcome the stored energy in the dent. In this case we use strong glue pulling power off of a concrete post and add the action of rolling the buckled up sheetmetal. I can't imagine pushing this dent out with pushing only; the power and leverage would be extreme.
Most Paintless dent repair is push-then-tap, this method is pull-and-tap.
The idea is to pull and tap at the same time. We attempt to direct the spot where the metal should go with a constant straight pull. We move the buckled up metal to that spot we are pulling. We create an artificial "gravity" for the metal and energy to flow.
About the dent:
The affected size was about 8" and around a highy angled bodyline. The metal is likely High Strength Steel (HSS) and is very very strong. This problem has compounded difficulty, the dent is:
- around several compound bodylines (bends)
- general geometry of all the strong shapes
- metal is made of HSS, as mentioned above.
High strength steel is modern family of steels that has a multiple phases. Some phases are hardened and some phases are soft. This complex steel alllows for good forming properties during manufacturing, but by the time it is stamped it is all strengthened. The automotive industry uses it for it strength so the parts can be thinner and lighter. Lighter = more fuel efficiency.
