PDR Line Board – Paintless Dent Repair /Removal Training

PDR Line Board – Paintless Dent Repair /Removal Training
What is a PDR Line Board you ask? Well it is a type of reflection (Striped Lines) used to read the damaged panel. Although it may seem intimidating, it’s actually not once you are properly instructed about how it works.
We must make a clear statement before we go any further. “There is no such thing as one reflection more superior than the other.” There are several common reflections used such as Fog, Shadow, Pole with stripe, and too many others to name. The truth about reflections is how well can you read your own reflection? How well from the start when you were trained or when you get trained will be the most important.
Straight Means Fixed
When we teach Lines, we explain the use of the board in outside conditions. Why? Because in the real world, you won’t have a nice comfy shop to work in. How many indoor dealerships do you know? But back to the topic. Lines dramatically show signs of curvature but there’s a slight catch 22! You have to develop a trained eye. You can’t just pop a Line board on a vehicle and think you can distinguish what to do.
Line patterns is what helps you as a guide. a line that is pinched, panel is indicating a high spot or going outward. A line that is fat or wide, indicates the panel has a low spot or indentation. Simple to say but hard to practice.

San Diego Paintless Dent Repair / Removal (PDR) Technique using the Glue Pulling Method
This dent was caused by a person’s body running into it. As you notice the dent has a massive and tight crown above it. In order to release stress from the crown, we used the glue pulling method for this type of paintless dent repair technique. Now the easy part was pulling the dent, no big deal right? Not really. Knowing exactly where to place the tabs can be tricky sometimes but more importantly, knowing how hard to pull. We used a 5lb slide hammer to do the job. One think you don’t want to do, is over stretch the area. It could have been a done deal if we did.
Next was the hard part. If you are a current PDR tech, you’ll understand there is always some sort of crowns on all dents. Some are more obvious than others. It took us 3 1/2 hours to tap down this crown even when most of the stress was taken off. It’s a battle back and forth. Push, knock down, push, knock down. As the dent got smaller, so did the crowns by becoming harder to identify. In these cases, we place our line reflection back further to view the waves (high and lows) that tell us what is left. We used a soft tip tap down so we did not cause tap down pits. The metal is so soft, it was like a tin can. I hate soft metal. A big dent like this can make or break you.
All in all, it turned out pretty decent and the customer was very happy. For more information please visit our official website DentTime.com
