Creases are just another type of dent, and just like other dents, PDR can remove them. In Ashdown crease repair professionals are serious about their work and your vehicle. PDR is short for paintless dent repair. It was invented in February 1960 during the “International Motor Sports Show” in New York, by a man who worked at Mercedes. He was just an ordinary staff member who discovered that instead of using the traditional method of removing dents he could ‘push’ out the dents to restore the surface of the car to its original condition.In Ashdown crease repair team has qualified professionals that do PDR on a professional level.

THE PDR PROCESS EXPLAINED

PDR takes advantage of the flexibility of the metal to push out the dents.There are special lights used to see the surface of the car properly. In Ashdown crease repair team uses hardened steel rods to push the metal out from inside the panel. They use special glue and tabs made especially for PDR to pull the dents out. These glues and tabs are specially made for PDR as they don’t damage the paint. They also use special hammers to push the dents out.
