Today Dentpro of Sacramento had the pleasure of repairing an aluminum F-150. One of the most common questions that we receive as paintless dent repair technicians is “Can you fix dents in aluminum?”.
More and more vehicles are made from aluminum panels instead of steel panels. An aluminum panel can make our job more difficult, but we can make dents looks just as perfect on aluminum as a traditional steel panel.
Aluminum dent repair requires a dent removal technician to keep a few things in mind.
- Dent repair on aluminum panels should always be done with heat to help microcracking in the aluminum
- Aluminum can be work hardened. The more times you push on it that harder it can be to fix.
- Aluminum must be pushed further than flat and then be allowed to rest back to flat.
This element can add a level of difficulty to dent repair. This is why you need to make sure you are using a highly trained paintless dent repair technician. All of our technicians at DentPro of Sacramento can work aluminum for you!
