PDR lights are an essential part of dent repair. The process includes reading the reflection of the PDR light off the panel to repair panel damage. Dent Repair Lights used to consist of a fluorescent type of light bulb modified to cast a larger area of fog. As PDR developed the industry started to integrate LED lighting cast through a lens or diffuser. An alternative source of reflection for dent repair is called the Reflector Board.
Hood stands allow for the repairing of panels that have been removed from the vehicle. Often used when a panel has a larger amount of damage to fix and when it would be more comfortable for longer periods of working time.
