Crowns and pressure releasing is one of the most important factors to understand and learn about paintless dent repair. It is also the most overlooked lesson during a trainee’s learning experience. Mainly due to not enough time during PDR training.
We show an introduction page from our Basic Line Board Manual regarding crowns. Not a whole lot to show but enough that you can tell what a crown looks like through our eyes and the line reflection. Our PDR training goes into depth about “identification.” If you can’t see it, how are you going to remove a dent completely?
In most cases, PDR techs who are not aware of crowns or simply don’t see them, end up forcing a dent to come out. Unfortunately, that won’t work. Instead the results are either a wave still visible or unwanted push marks. Identifying crowns and releasing pressure creates a smoother and faster repair which eliminates forcing a repair.
You must understand a dent wants to go back to its original shape. You just need to know why, how and where. Moving the board in different angles is one key but the details that are surrounding it is what puts it all together.
Our one-on-one PDR training explains in detail why you are missing what you’re not seeing. If you are already a veteran PDR tech, you may want to purchase the Basic Line Board Manual before taking advanced training? Although again, there is no substitution for personal and one-on-one PDR training.
Our pdr manual is designed to give you more insight which can make all of a world of difference. If you have any questions regarding PDR training or the Line Board Manual, please visit denttime.com
