I had a nice dent to do before Labor Day weekend and this dent I had to say was a nice little challenge. Very stretched, sharp and hard to handle dent that had a crazy crown just one inch about the body line. I won’t give too much away but let’s say you will definitely want to see how it went. Stay tuned as I will explain the details later. Meanwhile take a sneak peek at the iPhone dent video.
I recently went out to do a customer who owned a Mitsubishi Eclipse. He had a crease dent that went through a body line on the rear quarter panel.
An experienced pdr technician understands access is almost impossible from the rear quarter panels. I was inspecting the vehicle and noticed underneath that there were recently drilled holes and 2 out 3 were not even plugged! One was somewhat plugged with some red looking silicone sealant.
The customer then stated he went to a competitor of mine (Who is a Franchise) and they drilled holes to access the dent. The only good thing is that they informed him but failed to tell him they didn’t bother to plug the other holes.
I removed 90% of this dent without creating harm to vehicle. I used a glue pull technique that removes the dent from the outside. Body lines are very hard to do because it is one of the strongest parts of the vehicle which holds the most tension. As you will see in the video, it is only noticeable with the line board. The line board is extremely detailed and can show the most hidden flaws like it’s being magnified.
My point is, if you think all pdr companies are the same, you could end up with not only an unsatisfactory repair but risk your vehicle being hacked up. Make sure you carefully do your homework and choose quality before a cheap price. If it sounds to good to be true, then it is. An experienced company like Dent Time is not the cheapest for good reason. Our customers understand that quality has value and doing things right are far more worth than cutting cost and risking a bad repair.
Please take some time and watch how this repair went.
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.
Learning 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.
