Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), also known as "Paintless Dent Removal", is a collection of techniques for removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR.
The most common practical use for PDR is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor body creases and minor bumper indentations. The techniques can also be applied to help prepare more heavily damaged panels prior to traditional repair techniques. Such applications are referred to as "push to paint", or "push for paint".
