Can deep, sharp crease dents be fixed with PDR, (Paintless Dent Repair)

Updated: Aug 25, 2021

The short answer, by Andrew Ray.

With the right PDR Technician, yes they can..

"Crease dents can be a tricky repair. It takes a Master PDR Technician with years of experience to perfect a sharp crease dent, especially in high metallic colors. It takes lots of patients, cross-checking and a pair of good eyes to see the small minute lines and imperfections in creases". Says Andrew

The paintless dent repair featured here is two 5" horizontal crease dents. This damage was located in the left rear door of this 2019 Jeep Renegade. With specialized tools like PDR glue tabs, PDR Glue, a Blending Hammer and Tap Downs, Andrew demonstrates how he uses crease tabs with a puller to pull some of the bulk out of this dent before using PDR rods. Why does he do this? Andrew does this to help minimize cleanup time by moving more metal at one time with PDR Glue and Tabs. He will also explain why using heat with this repair is a vital part of this dent repair.
