Dent Repair Process

STEP 1: PREP

Prep the area for treatment by thoroughly cleaning it of any dust or debris. We assess whether the repair will be a traditional dent repair or a paintless dent repair (PDR). If the latter, the repair process will be complete after step two.

STEP 2: HEAT TREAT

Once the area has been cleaned sufficiently, the dent is treated with a heat gun. Administering this heat to the bumper will help it form back to its original shape, slowly removing the dent.

STEP 3: BODY FILLER

If the dent does not completely remold after treatment, we use a body filler to make sure that the damaged area is smoothed out and has an even finish.

STEP 4: SAND & PRIME

Once the filler has taken 20 or 30 minutes to completely dry, the area where the dent occurs will be sanded down to create a smooth surface for the paint primer. The primer will help the paint adhere to the bumper.

STEP 5: PAINT

Once the primer has dried, the area will be painted over. At Bumper Buddies, we use computer-match PPG paint to ensure a 100% color match. This ensures that your bumper will look entirely new and seamless, with no unsightly discoloration or patches.

STEP 6: CLEAR COAT

Our final step is to apply a glossy clear coat that will enhance the paint and ensure that the damaged area is protected after the mobile dent repair is finished.
