The 1967 Chevy Corvair had seen better days when it showed up on the doorstep of Dent Busters. Rust was slowly extinguishing its once-hot-pink flame decals, and the engine was left exposed by a missing hood. For the car, Dent Busters was either a final hope or final resting place. For Dent Busters, the car was just another makeover to hang on a wall of successes?a car the staff completely restored and sent flying down the road reignited by its newly painted flames.
It?s a typical scenario for the technicians at Dent Busters?cars come in severely rusted or dented, and leave in original factory condition. After an initial interview with the client, the techs get to work with research and assessment before offering an estimate. Once cleared to start, they can paintlessly repair dents , detail the interior, or provide complete collision repair, rust removal, and custom paint with computerized color matching. They document all progress and upload photos to the site so owners can feed their curiosity and print out copies to fill the empty space in their driveway.
