Most small dents can be repaired in about an hour.
“What size dents can be repaired?”
Most non-collision dents can be repaired using PDR methods. The limiting factor is the relationship of the dents depth to the diameter. A large shallow dent may be more repairable than a a small deep dent. Dents caused by car doors and hail storms are typically completely removed with out signs of repair.
