Franchise Don’t Mean Better

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


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.

3 week PDR Training Going Well

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


For those that are following how Dan is doing with his paintless dent repair training, I have an update. Today was the official start of his third week of pdr training.

The first week we did a lot of ding removals. Some were easy and some were challenging. As I train Dan, I remind him that it’s all about the quality and he has definitely kept that in mind. His pushes are incredibly accurate without making irreversible mistakes like; paint cracks and guessing.

The second week was all about learning to control the tool tip and perfecting how to finish. PDR starts with a foundation and builds from there. I can not teach a student beyond the basics without them Knowing how to perfect the fundamentals of paintless dent repair. Learning the art of paintless dent removal starts from the basics of being able to read the line board, tool tip location, tool usage and developing muscle memory. All these factors when taught correctly build a good habit. Advanced paintless dent repair can not be achieved until the basics have been mastered.

Dan has made impressive progress thanks to his dedication and disciplined patience without giving up. Staring at a panel with lines going across the damaged area can take toll on a pdr trainee. As I mention in most of my articles or posts, pdr is not easy to learn but learning from the right instructor CAN make it all the better.

Today we had a great opportunity to work and train on a late model Mercedes Benz. Dan who did 85% of the dent. He started on this dent at about 10:45am and finished around 3pm. No lunch break in between, just a couple of small water breaks. Now I don’t starve my pdr students, it’s just we eat a big breakfast before we do pdr training.

Now the videos you are about to see are raw and unedited. Dan did most of this dent as you will see. We worked on hidden crowns, glue pulled, worked the body line, tapped down like about 500-800 times and crossed check like crazy.

Check out Dan’s pdr training progress and you be the judge. Please visit our main website for more info

Deep Paintles Dent Repair Training / New Training Articles

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.

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

Ultra Dent Paintless Dent Repair Tools can now be found on ReconExpress.com’s new re-designed web site (Click Here to View). Sorry if that sounded like Ultra Dent Tools does not have a web site anymore, they still do of coarse. It’s just now they started branching out where other PDR (paintless dent repair / removal) techs stop by Recon Expres on a regular basis.

Ultra Dent Tools plans on showcasing some of their “new” PDR tools they will be promoting early next year while working aslo on a new tool application video as well. Their new page on Recon Express will host all their new needs and act as a second site to their main web site. This is also a chance for Recon Express to demonstrate how other advertisers can take full advantage of the many benefits and usage the site has to offer.

Look for Ultra Dent Tools to be expanding their page often as construction continues on their feature page.
