Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Whether you are a person thinking about getting into the art of paintless dent removal or need to know a little more about body line paintless dent repair, this article should shed some light.
To have a successful body line dent repair, it will depend on a few things.

#1 How you understand your reflection.
Depending how you were taught will be the outcome how you consistently see the dent during your pdr repairs. I personally use a line board and I move it around quite often. Meaning I cross check as I remove my dent. Switching sides is crucial as you go.

#2 What tools you use.
Along with experience, you will know that how you work with your tools brings out the final out come. For example, if you use the wrong type of tap down, you will end up with nasty tap down pits. Again it comes down to how well you understand your tools too. There is more than one way to skin a cat so don’t get convinced that there is only one right way. There are hundreds of ways to remove a dent with different tools.

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Hey everyone, I had a similar article up before about deep ding repairs but I wrote an article more in depth about my past trainee and his progress. I also spoke about more candid truth to paintless dent repair training. If you happen to be interested in paintless dent repair / removal training then this article will be for you. So check it out and hope you like it.

paintless dent repair training with Dent TimeLearning paintless dent removal correctly not only involves time but a lot of patience. This article is about a trainee I trained early last year along with his partner Alex which I will talk about later in another article. This video you are about to watch or already did, is about a very complex deep ding / dent. When I teach someone how to learn the art of paintless dent removal, it’s not about just pushing and tapping. There is a big philosophy to it and an important procedure.

Besides the philosophy and procedure (technique), there are the tools. Tools are a third of the solution or the problem for many who can’t figure out how to finish. Understanding the capabilities of what your tools can really do, help you become a much better and efficient paintless dent repair technician. As you see in this video (continued article from link below), Fotis understands the the pdr technique, is patient and comprehends his tool usage well. With the combination of all three techniques being put to use, the results are amazing. Please keep in mind, Fotis in this video has had no prior experience or practiced before hand.

Mercedes Benz Deep Paintless Dent Repair – PDR Training

When I saw this dent and I knew I had to at least take some photos and document my PDR process. I never get tired of taking photos of my work. Besides, it’s really not work. To me it’s having fun doing what I love. Paintless Dent Removal has become my passion behind marketing my passion. I also train PDR personally as well. From beginner to advanced, I share my passion and devotion to paintless dent removal and the auto reconditioning market.

Now enough about that. Let’s briefly talk about this dent repair. It is quite intimidating indeed for any experienced tech. Although if you are an experienced tech, that feeling only last briefly until you begin to perform the job. Tools were essential. Wrong tools, wrong results. Although it takes more than tools to gain good results. A little patience, correctly reading the board and of coarse… experience.

I used a bladed shaved door tool (Ultra Dent Tools) to do most of the dirty work. I also used a knock down from (Dent Craft Tools) or (Dent Gear) to remove the crowns and highs. Now I can’t just rush into the center. If I do, I will cause an oil can effect and then it will be a done deal, game over. I work from the top, then tap. I use this technique back n forth and switching sides in between so I keep the dent balanced.

Little by little within two hours, I have completed the job. No sanding, painting. Just one happy customer and a little satisfaction.

Body Line Dent Repair – PDR Paintless Dent Removal Training

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Here we have a fairly deep dent on the body line of a 750IL BMW. As you can see when you blow click on the diagram, you’ll notice the pinched lines above the center of the dent in photo #1. If you don’t release pressure off the crown, you are going to have a real hard time moving the dent.

The #2 photo you’ll notice the lines above the center dent are now straighter. Which indicates pressure has been removed. From here, we’ll work gradually push from top to bottom into the center.

As the we work the dent towards the center, the outside surrounding area will become tighter (Photo #3). We want to knock down the outside to help relieve pressure. This helps the flexibility in the paint so we don’t cause and cracking. Now it’s important you are very accurate pushing. A good idea would be to use some type of protection on the tip of your tool like tape or a plastic cover.

#4 photos shows a slight high and a low. You want to keep your dent always clean as possible before you work the center. (Some cases, you can work the center direct but in this case, the dent is too deep for this method) Make sure you switch sides between pushing and knocking down so you can keep your dent balanced and clean.

#5 This photo shows that we are close after repeating steps 3 & 4. Again we are always checking from one side to the other.

#6 The final step. Cross checking is important. Stand up and move your board in all directions to catch any curvature or fade that will indicate your repair. Clean and polish.

Now this is a real basic explanation of our PDR repair. With one on one training, you’ll have a much better understanding and grasp of this technique. For inquiries of PDR Training, please visit our main website. Or visit our official blog.

What this PDR Manual is About.

Obviously it’s about “paintless dent repair” (PDR). But what it is actually directed towards the “line reflection.” Lines are a unique pattern we use to read the dent. Most PDR techs don’t use lines. Why? Obviously they weren’t trained on them from the start, haven’t heard about lines at all, or don’t quite understand the “line board” concept. Don’t get me wrong, even if you use another reflection, this manual doesn’t discriminate with other PDR techs. It actually helps a PDR tech gain more skill.

Lines Are For Everyone!

When we designed this manual, we wanted everyone to understand it easily. From a newbie to a veteran PDR fog tech, we feel confident that this will be one of the best manuals ever developed for the paintless dent repair industry.

We create an exciting manual that matches an exciting training adventure!
