When faced with a car body dent repair job, you need to determine the severity of the dent and decide if paintless repair is possible or if you require a full panel beating job. In the case of paintless repair, it is considerably cheaper than a full panel beating, since you don’t have to completely re-spray or match the body work. Usually it can be done quickly, which also means you do not have the inconvenience of not having your vehicle. The person doing the job usually uses a rubber hammer to tap from the inside to align the panels with the surrounding metal.
