This repair was peformed in Flemington New Jersey by Dent Busters. The customer was visiting his daughter for the holidays, when his son in law accidentally backed into the corner of his pickup truck. In order to fix the dent, I had to remove the tail light so that Icould gain access and have leverage to pry behind the dent. I then used heat to warm up the paint and metal so that it would make it easier to fix the damage. This also prevets the paint from cracking. Using a variety of long metal rods, I then begain to push and massage the metal back to its original position. The overall repair was very simple, excpet for the fact that there was a body line going through the middle of the dent. Body lines are usually a structural part of the panel and tend to require more force to be pushed out. The repair from start to finish was about 3.5 hours and the result was perfect. The customer couldn’t believe how well it looked. The whole time he was fascinated with the art of paintless dent repair.

Ford Escape Door Dent

This repair was done at the customers house in Easton, Pa. It was caused by someone opening their door into the customer’s vehicle. These type of repairs require a little more attention being that the dent is located on the edge of the door where the door skin is attached to the door frame. The sheet metal tends to stretch in this area. I was able to access the dent by removing the door handle screw plug and using a small curved rod to slide in there and gently work the dent out. A dent like this typically costs anywhere from $185-$250.
