A Brief History of Paintless Dent Repair

Rewind the clock to the early 1960s. At a Mercedes-Benz dealership worked a man named Oskar Flaig. His job was to ensure that cars that came into the showroom would be ready to be viewed by the public. And, of course, during the shows themselves, the cars would be touched a lot — so he’d have to turn around and make sure the cars were in good shape after the shows as well. It was his job to fix up small dents and scratches. Initially, he was just like any other employee at Mercedes-Benz.

That is, until he began to experiment with alternative ways for getting rid of small dents. He was able to pop some dents out by using the handle of a hammer. He got surprisingly good results, which only fueled his creativity. Over time, he continued to experiment with various ways of popping out dents. It was Flaig who developed the earliest versions of paintless dent repair. Ultimately, it’s due to his creativity and innovation that we are able to have the effective modern incarnations of paintless dent repair. It’s because of Flaig that you can come to AJ’s and get amazing paintless dent repair right here in Denver!

What Is Paintless Dent Repair Technology?

Flaig’s experimentation led to modern day paintless dent repair. So, what does that look like, exactly? As we’ve discussed in a previous blog post, paintless dent repair involves highly-trained specialists pushing the metal of a car back to its original form. Sometimes this involves the removal of a vehicle’s paneling, other times it’s a bit more straightforward. In any case, paintless dent repair is the optimal choice for a variety of dents — but especially dents caused by hail damage. On top of that, the advantages are manifold. A number of advantages for paintless dent repair include:

  • No repainting or body filler needed
  • Less expensive than traditional body repair
  • Same-day service in most cases
  • No risk of paint overspray on other vehicle areas
  • No risk of incorrect color matching
  • Vehicle retains original paint

A vehicle with original paint retains a higher value than a repainted vehicle. Even if it is just a door or a fender, it is always preferable to maintain the original paint on a vehicle for as long as possible.
