Their are many benefits to doing PDR over a conventual repair. Pointless dent repair is the closest you can get to the dent never happening in the first place. No grinding, bondo, fillers, or primers are needed because your original factory paint is not disturbed. In todays cars paint colors are extremely complex, with the use of pearls and metallics and multiple coats, with PDR you don’t have to worry about the possibility of color not perfectly matching. There are no problems with filler or paint shrinkage months after the repair as is typical with most body shop repairs. To most customers the most important benefit is cost, PDR is a bargain compared to conventional body repairs, and time savings is yet another advantage. That same dent can be fixed in less than an hour. A body shop will take 3 – 5 days or longer.
