How Did You Get Your Door Dent?
The cause of the door dent can reveal a lot about what kind of damage it has done, and how well we can repair it. For instance, if your car was struck by a small rock on the freeway, the resulting damage could be very sharp, thus difficult to remove. Wider dents caused by slow collisions, child passengers, careless shoppers, and other everyday inconveniences are the easiest to repair. They are the most common, and usually happen right in the middle of a panel. Take notice of how your dent happened. This information can be invaluable during the Texarkana door dent removal process.
Can We Fix It?
The most important part about repairing a dent is knowing whether or not it is possible. Fixing a dent relies on a variety of factors. If you attempt to repair a dent that is too tough, or in a place that is too difficult to access you could end up with further damage to your car. Therefore, we always start with the two most important elements of a repairable dent: Size and Position.
- Size – Normally, large dents aren’t difficult to repair supposing the paint is intact. However, if they have caused extensive damage there could be a problem. The most important piece of the puzzle is depth. Small dents with a deep center are especially difficult to fix since the metal is stretched thin, and is prone to tearing.
- Position – The location of the dent is arguably more important than the size. In most cases, we need access to the back of the dent in order to remove it. If the damage is in a place like the edge of a door panel it could be impossible to reach. Not to mention the tightness of the metal in these spots makes it hard to reshape.
