Regardless of how careful we are with our vehicles, dents and dings do happen. Paintless Dent Repair is a great option for removing those dents & dings. Western Dent’s certified PDR technicians take great pride in returning aluminium or metal panels back to factory shape, without damaging the vehicles custom or factory painted surface. The techniques used at Western Dent provide fast, convenient and cost-effective repairs to keep your vehicle looking like new.
Conventional auto body repair is expensive and those repairs are most often time-consuming. The bondo and body fillers used in this process can shrink or crack over time and also contain harsh chemicals. Furthermore, factory paint, especially metallic and three stage paint, can be nearly impossible to match.
Your vehicle could be in the body shop for two to three weeks or longer, leaving you without transportation or an expensive rental car bill. Paintless Dent Repair is clearly a better choice!
The Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) method removes dents and dings quickly, much faster than conventional body shop repairs. With Paintless Dent Removal, there are no fillers and there is no sanding. PDR is by far the most non-invasive dent removal process available today.
Paintless Dent Repair has been around since the 1930’s, and lately it has been gaining popularity because its not only an effective alternative, but an inexpensive technique for having minor repairs done. PDR offers a considerably higher ROI (return on investment) than traditional dent repair.
What types of damage can PDR repair?
- Minor dents
- Body creases
- Hail damage
- Plastic bumper dents
- Motorcycle gas tank damage
PDR is a great option for any type of damage that hasn’t gone into the paint. In most cases, as long as the paint has remained intact, PDR is very successful!
The first step to any repair process is to evaluate the damage. Most dents, creases and dings can be repaired using PDR, as long as the paint surface has not been damaged. Once the damaged area has been evaluated and its deemed a candidate for Paintless Dent Repair, a Western Dent PDR technician will begin to prepare your vehicle for repair.
The majority of the time, the technician will need to access the back side of the dent, which often leads to the delicate removal of exterior body panels, tail lights, and at times, interior panels.
Western Dent’s PDR technicians use precision tools to skillfully manipulate the underside of the vehicle panel, returning the aluminum or metal back to its original factory shape, resulting in a smooth, damage free surface. Your factory paint remains unaffected and dents are erased. Permanently. The skill of the technician directly impacts the quality of the repair. At Western Dent, we take pride in performing this artistry, so only the highest quality Paintless Dent Repair is achieved.
Automobile owners are not the only ones who benefit from PDR. PDR has also become popular among auto dealerships who use the process to prepare used vehicles for resale, guaranteeing a higher value. Body shops utilize PDR as an add-on service by partnering with PDR providers such as Western Dent. PDR has actually been around for decades, it is thought to have its origins in the 1930’s. Automobile factories, such as Mercedes Benz, would have “dingmen”, who would utilize crude implements, such as, spoons and their bare hands to push out dents. PDR has advanced greatly since then, now many specialized tools have been created to help our technicians skillfully massage the panels back into shape.

Motorcycle PDR is a cutting-edge way to restore your motorcycle tank or fender to like-new condition.
As soon as you bring in your bike, we get to work! Our state-of-the-art repair instruments allow us to safely and securely remove dents from motorcycle tanks and fenders using our Motorcycle Paintless Dent Repair (MPDR) techniques.
MPDR can repair anything from vintage motorcycle tanks to sleek modern tanks. By preserving your custom paint job, factory paint, and even rare original finish, it saves both time and money compared to conventional body repair.
How do you remove a dent from a motorcycle tank or fender? The conventional answer to this question is by removing the component, rubbing it down or removing the paint with stripper, applying filler to the damaged areas, and then rubbing the filler down before re-painting the entire thing. Not only is this process time and labor intensive, it still may not result in a perfectly smooth finish.
Conventional dent removal usually requires the tank to remain on the bike, which limits tank access for complete dent removal. This approach also risks damaging other parts of the bike in the repair process.
Before restoration begins, we secure your tank or fender firmly with a custom vice designed specifically for motorcycle PDR so it will not move around during the process. The vice allows us to position the angles in order to obtain the perfect tool leverage and protect the tank or fender throughout the process.We carefully remove dents in the tank or fender with specially designed tools that gently pull the damaged area out to make it a smooth surface again. This eliminates dents without any harm to your factory or custom finish.
Removing dents from motorcycle tanks and fenders can be tricky. Access can often be an issue. Motorcycle tanks have their caps on the top, usually at the highest point, to allow for maximum filling capacity. Unfortunately, the gas caps on motorcycle tanks are not large openings. This restriction makes it difficult to remove the dents from the inside.
Additionally, some motorcycle gas tanks are double skinned – kind of like a tank inside of a tank. This makes it very difficult to remove the dent as pressure is applied to the inside metal skin rather than the outside metal skin where the dent actually is. MPDR is performed on the outside when working with this type of gas tank.
Properly performed, the dent will vanish completely and the repair will be invisible. Well executed, motorcycle paintless dent removal will never be detected because there is nothing left to see.
