Paintless Dent Repair
We inspected the car for bodywork damage. There are a couple of areas that have been scuffed, scraped and even gouged. We didn't think we could repair all damage on the car with smart repairs and that they warranted full car body shop repair. Unfortunately there was no time to do this on this visit to England, so this will be done when the car returns in the winter. But we were able to do the dents on the panels that won't be repainted.

Small dents on rear panel marked and ready for paintless dent repair.

The car was inspected and the dents marked out with tape for Chris to do. There were 22 minor dents in total of which we were able to do about 14, the rest couldn't be done because of lack of access. As dents are pushed out from behind, sometimes we are hindered by double-skins or strengthening structures behind the panels.

Chris removes dents with PDR.

 

Dent on Rolls-Royce hub cap.
A dent in the hub cap! This can be done with paintless dent repair.

While we were inspecting the vehicle, it was noticed that there was a dent in the hub cap and it was marked for Chris to do. Unfortunately, he didn't notice the marker and so didn't do the dent. Doing dents on wheels is not something he often sees so he wasn't looking, in fact it's very rare to see hub caps on a car these days. But he may still have more dents to do anyway when the car comes back again.

Ask the Experts
 We are always happy to help, so please ask us your questions [more]

We have assembled a panel of experts from across the industry with a combined experience of over 200 years. You can find out about the experts here, and read the code of conduct they follow here.

Any questions sent to us are posted in the Q&A area of our site so that they can help other people... We do strip out any personal information but please put your e-mail or number ONLY in the correct fields so we can keep them hidden. Once we have answered your question, we will email you.

IF YOU DON'T HEAR FROM US AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS... it may because our email to you ended up in your spam filter or was blocked by your mail server. You can always look on our Q&A section to see if your answer is there. We don't work Sundays or Bank Holidays, and it can take us a couple of days to catch up with enquiries at the beginning of the week. If you are in a hurry, you can always give us a call.

If you don't have a photo don't worry, you can still send us your question, just be aware that we may not be able to give you a good answer if we can't see what we are being asked about. If you can't supply a photo, please give us a description. You can also send us your photos and questions even if you have no intention of using our services. We don't mind at all!

Photo Tips - Try to get one good close up of any damaged area, and then one shot which clearly shows the location... try and get in the nearest 'landmark' like a wheel arch or headlamp. When taking photos of dents, try taking them from a distance and zooming in. Use the reflection of a wall or fence to help show the dents. If your camera has problem focusing on chips or scratches, stick a piece of tape next to the damaged area and focus in on that, this will also help us get an idea of scale. When sending us photos of wheels, send us examples of the worst of the damage and one full picture of the face of the wheel so we can see what kind of finish it has.

The more information we have, the easier it is to answer! So you can include information such as the age of your car, and even your location - after all we might be able to recommend somebody closer.

Posting Links Please avoid posting links to photos, it causes us problems! If you would like to show us a page on another website, please just paste in the URL address -- DO NOT use HTML or BB script to try and make it an active link, if you do your message will be rejected by our spam filter.

Notify me by text message when my question is answered.
