You wouldn’t really think of PDR when dealing with a truck that has backed into a tree and damaged its bedside. Dan Noeltner of Dent Specialist Incorporated in Highland, Illinois, takes cases like these as a challenge to showcase his skills as a technician. Servicing the Saint Louis area, Dan’s most recent gig was that of a 2500 Chevrolet truck where the bedside was severely damaged as a result of a collision with a tree. The repair work was done in the shop in Highland.
The customer backed into a tree and wrinkled the bedside on the truck and considered putting in a new bedside and even a new bed because of the severity of the damage. The body line was also dented quite deep and the bottom edge of the bedside between the bumper and tyre was wrinkled. When the customer brought the truck in, he had already removed the bumper which made the repair process a little bit easier. To fully gain access to the damage, the tail light had to be removed but the tyre didn’t require removal. The repair was quite lengthy, but was eventually completed and the bedside was returned to normal.
Choosing the paintless dent repair method ensures that your car is free from dents, but also retains its original paint job. It is better to first visit the Dent Specialist Incorporated before checking out a body shop because they will always point you away from a paintless dent repair or insist that PDR is not an option, even for the smallest dents.
If you live around the Highland area and are looking for some dent repair work, Dent Specialist Incorporated would be one of the best options.

Jay, a customer from Alhambra, bought a used 2015 Jeep Wrangler. It had the jeep cowl dent that a lot of jeeps get in them. After removing the doors, people take the door strap off, the door swings around and hits the mirror into the cowl of the vehicle. Jay bought the Jeep with the dent into our shop in Highland, Illinois to be repaired. It looked like someone else tried repairing it without having much luck. We were able to straighten out what they had done to the dent and make it look like new again.
This is a paintless dent repair save that insurance company told customer they need to have repaired in a body shop. This customer didn’t want to have it repainted.
A customer from Greenville, Illinois brought in their 2018 Chevy Equinox with a sharp door ding in the passenger door. They turned it into their insurance company. The insurance company recommended they take it to a body shop. The customer did not want it repaired by being repainted, so they brought it to us to fix with the paintless dent repair method. Some people think that because it’s through a body line, it cannot be repaired with the paintless dent repair method, but, we are able to fix dents through body lines. This one we repaired by going by going down the window and working it out from the back side. Making it look brand new, like it did from the factory, without repainting the vehicle. The customer was very happy that he could keep his original factory paint. This particular customer has worked in the body shop industry for over 40 years and thought that the paintless dent repair method was better than having it repainted. So, the insurance company wrote us a check for the repair instead of a body shop doing it. We also do repairs along with body shops and working with insurance companies.
