Dent removal in the past was barbaric by today’s standards. Using a screw, auto body repair technicians would literally pull out the dented piece by piece. Unfortunately, this left a lot of holes in the metal and could lead to corrosion. Today, auto body repair is more akin to an art form than sheer brute strength. One of the methods for removing car dents is using an “eagle claw” stud welder. This technique requires the technician to shape the panel back to the original contour before priming and painting it. To learn more about this technique, watch this short video clip.
