Do damplifying materials hinder/increase the cost for autobody repair?

    So I am very interested in adding some noise dampening material inside my truck. I also want to take my truck into an autobody shop to repair a couple smaller dents/chipped paint. How will the noise dampening material that is attached to the interior metal of the truck effect the cost/process of getting these dents fixed? I have yet to read anything about autobody repair shops hating those materials because I would assume they just get in the way when trying to pop those dents out? Anyone have this stuff installed then take your rig in to get some dents repaired? Should I be taking it in before adding Damplifier?
