All too often throughout the course of my working day I come across ‘non-factory’ holes and bungs in door edges, quarter panels and even the roof rails of cars. It is usually evidence that a poor quality dent technician has been working on the vehicle. Probably the most common sites you would find this is on a used car forecourt where the focus is on getting the cheapest repair possible regardless of the quality. It is usually done just to speed up the process of the repair where it is difficult to access the back of the panel to get rods behind the dent to ‘massage’ it out. (you can learn how paintless dent repair is performed in my article; ‘How does car dent repair work’). Rather than strip a door out, remove a tail light or a piece of trim, the technician will drill or punch a hole to force their tool through. Many technicians consider their only option to fix a dent as they are not aware of, or have not got to grips with alternative methods of repair such as the relatively new skill of ‘glue-pulling’.
