Before PDR, the only alternative was to have a body shop strip the damaged panels
to bare metal, pound out the pockmarks, cover the panel with filler, sand, and repaint.
Having just two or three door dings repaired using traditional body-shop methods
can cost hundreds of dollars and take days or weeks to repair. We can do the same
job for much less and it only takes about an hour. Today's lighter-gauge sheet metals
are easier to bend, and body paints are now flexible enough to stretch without cracking.
Don’t let this be your car... ouch!
Benefits of Paintless Dent Repair

your original finish.

Types of Damage That Can Be Repaired
Small & Large Dents-Zing-A-Ding can repair anything from a slight wave, to a
dent the size of softball. It may be virtually invisible (except to you) or may look
like a minor collision. Whatever the size, they are all annoying. Most can be removed
so perfectly, they become a memory.
Hail Damage - Instead of replacing your hood, roof, trunk, and other areas of
your vehicle with aftermarket parts, let Zing-A-Ding make the repairs and keep your
original sheet metal in tact. The cost to repair using paintless dent repair generally
costs half of what it would to use traditional body shop techniques.
Creases - Creases can be removed as long as the metal has not been "stretched"
too far. Even if the crease is too large to be removed completely, it can often be
improved enough so the after effect is barely noticeable.
Zing-A-Ding guarantees that it's professional services are performed to the highest
standards of skilled workmanship. If you are not satisfied, we are not satisfied.
Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a process of removing small dings and dents from vehicles
without sanding, filling, or repainting the original finish of the vehicle.
Body panel metal has "memory". It will return to its original shape and contour when
massaged into place. In paintless dent repair, we use metal rods to reach inside
the body panels and gently massage the dent until it's flush with the surface. With
the rod in place, we use a gentle prying motion to push out the dent, starting at
the dent's perimeter and slowly working toward the center. Any fine scratches left
on the clear coat layer, or paint from the damaging car, can be polished off, once
these steps are completed, the paint and sheet metal are returned to factory condition.
