The difference between panel beating and paintless dent repair
Is that panel beating is a more intensive process that involves taking out dents and dings, while paintless dent repair simply removes the dent or ding without damaging the paintwork.
One of the advantages of panel beating is that it can repair more severe damage than paintless dent repair, such as deep gouges or large dents. panel beating can also be used to repair damage that is not purely cosmetic, such as panel gaps that have become misshapen due to an impact.
Another advantage of panel beating is that it can be used to repair damage that has affected multiple panels. This is often the case with accidents where more than one panel is damaged. Paintless dent repair is usually only suitable for repairing damage to a single panel.
