PDR is now PCR – Paintless Collision Removal

I don’t know why I can’t control my passion for PDR? I should say, “no” to a lot of the beyond the “normal” dents. Fortunately though it seemed to pay off. People these days are on a tighter budget and looking to save as much money as possible.
Most people want to only fix their cars if they have to or it’s too obvious to live with. That’s why I believe our trade is raising the bar about paintless dent removal. PDR is now getting into the Paintless “Collision” Removal a.k.a. PCR.
I have a few reasons for doing big dents. Obviously the first reason is the money. But what really drives me to do bigger dents is the self satisfaction. Knowing I can do the big dents and finish… And it pays off.

BMW X5 Crease Repair – San Diego Paintless Dent Repair

Here we have a really deep crease on the door of a BMW X5. My approach is to work from the outside edges but first I must knock down the crowns or also known as the highs.
Knocking down helps for several reasons. #1 is it releases tension from the center and #2 it also helps the paint keep flexibility while applying pressure from behind.
Now since I offer personal training and sell a detailed PDR Line Board manual, I can’t tell you exactly how and what tools I used to remove the dent. What I can tell you though is that this type of dent will take a lot of patience and accurate pushes to get your reflection straight as possible.
If you are interested in PDR training, please email me and I will send you some more info. I train in real situations at dealerships, body shops and with retail customers.
The whole thing about PDR training is the learning experience and environment. My training is not a classroom situation and not a routine. If it was a routine it would only benefit myself and not yourself the student. Every situation is different and that is the only way I feel a student can grasp PDR at a much better pace.
