The Dent Devils Hybrid Repair methodology is the culmination of over 33 years of development and refinement gained from over 20,000 real life dent repairs by the owner Eddie Martin.
What is The Dent Devils Hybrid Paintless Repair Methodology? It is the combination of Eddie's Paintless Dent Repair Methodology and ISHIHARA panel repair technology that is combined with the Miracle Panel Repair System from Japan. Unlike the outdated nail guns used by other shops that over heat todays HSS High Strength Steels which reduces their strenght, can burn holes and the corrosion protection from the back side of the panel. The Miracle System tools does not over heat today's High Strength Steels and Aluminum's. These machines fuse slotted metal or aluminum tabs with up to 80% less heat than outdated nail guns. So just like the paintless dent repair method the chance of damaging the corrosion protection on the back side of the panels is eliminated or reduced. Repairing your auto with paintless dent repair or our Hybrid Repair Method leads to less diminished value compared to just bondoing and repainting the damage like a regular body shop.
What about painting? Just like a large dealership body shop we can custom mix any color with our Cromax Pro mixing bank which is Axalta's top of the line enviromental friendly base-coat system (Axalta is formerly known as Dupont).
What about color matching todays complicated metallic pearls, effect colors and 3 stage paints? We computer match your paint with the ACQUIRE PLUS EFX advanced technology , a hand-held spectrophotometer designed to help repair shops achieve the most accurate color match possible. Its advanced optic technology looks deep into the paint film to acquire the flake and color characteristics that are the keys to determining the best color match from different angles. This technology lets us view onscreen Color Proofing alternates so we can visually compare the vehicle to the closest available paint formula. This system also allows us to retrieve digital information and compare colors onscreen and with the Fan Decks that are actual spray out made with Cromaxpro to significantly increase the chance of a perfect color match.
We are a small shop that thrives on referrals from happy customers. Not one that is under contract with insurance companies. So we do not have to worry about cutting corners at the risk of your families safety. We are one of the few shops that will fight against the use of counterfit parts from LKQ / Keystone they do not have the same safety and warranty as the OEM Original Equipment Manufacturer , parts off crashed cars.
No manufacturer approves these substandard parts to be used in the repairs of their cars as it is a safety issue and deminishes the autos value. (Anderson Cooper from CNN exposes insurance companies)
We are on the West side of the 163 freeway and North end of Kearny Mesa Road. When you see the Mobile gas station at the red light go North until you get to the North East corner of the complex (the next complex is Cubic). Take a left and we are the third corner building. Typical shop hours are Monday to Friday from 10:30 am until 6 pm and sometimes on Saturday from 11am until 4pm. We always suggest calling or texting (619) 726 -6767 before coming out to make sure the shop is open.
