CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Many people with hail damaged vehicles are learning that the repair process may not be as bad as it first appeared.  If the damage is not too severe, the hail dents can be pushed or pulled out, in a process known as paintless dent repair.

The people who do it call it an art form. They have learned to use a variety of tools to push and pull a hail dent out, without having to repaint the vehicle, where the repair was done.  

John Mosley owner of Clinton Body Shop for 33 years, didn't believe it was possible when he first heard about it years ago.

"When it first came out I was very skeptical," said Mosley. "We saw a lot of them getting the repair done, and we were totally against it, until we met some guys who knew how to do it right and give us training on it, and now we have now we have a full time paintless repair person."

Now Mosley has Mike Fuller working full time for him repairing dents without the use of paint.   Fuller has been doing it for about ten years and can make some dents disappear and you would never know it was there.

Phil Ginn travels around the world making dents disappear, without paint, but right now he is working at Clinton Body Shop                                                

"It's really an art form," said Ginn. "It take's years to learn it, experience to learn to massage the metal until it bends out slowly."

Be prepared for the repair of hail damage in this area to take days or weeks.
