San Diego Professional Mobile Paintless Dent Repair and Crease Removal
Removing creases can be pretty tricky for the most part. Imagine taking a piece of paper, folding it and then trying to iron the line out.
Performing paintless dent repair with creases take precise tool tip control. We use a special and unique board called the “Lines.” This line board basically is point of reference. It tells us where to push, if the metal is going outward or inward. As you watch the video, be aware the tool is being wedged between the impact beam and the skin of the panel. A very thin tool as you see in the video (whale tail) is used for applying pressure with one side of the blade. Perfect pushes blend the dent into the orange peel. Depending on how deep a crease is, the results vary between 90-100% removal.
If you are planning to have PDR done in the near future and you are not in San Diego, please note, repairs vary depending on the individual experience of your PDR technician. Find a local PDr tech in your area and visit reconexpress.com for a PDR tech near you.

When it comes to deep and complex paintless dent repair, Dent Time is the specialist. Removing a body line dent like you see above takes a lot of experience and skill. Please be aware, performing this type of repair is not typical for most PDR companies. This is a very difficult repair to achieve w/out disturbing the paint finish.
How did we really do it? A few things are involved. We use a special line reflection that gives us tremendous detail about the dent itself. Reading the line board is probably the most important factor why this repair turned out successfully. The reflection of the lines give distinctive patterns.
Tools. Special designed tools are used to gain access behind the dent. We also use tools that gently tap down the area of the panel that indicates high spots to help the flexibility of the paint.
Over time one can build a lot of experience but pushing the envelope beyond what is possible builds skill and consistent results. We always are up for a challenge when it comes to complex and advanced paintless dent repair. Not only we perform it we teach the skill as well.

Although this diagram demonstrates a tactical way to remove a big dent with paintless dent repair, it is highly recommended to get professional one-on-one PDR training to gain the fullest benefits.
This PDR dent was attacked using a glue pulling method and finished off with lots of crown work and precision pushing with steel rods. We would like to stress, there were many steps between the photos to get this dent completely out. A big dent like this requires high experience and patience to get satisfactory results. We will in the future post a video of how much of a monster and challenging paintless dent repair this was.
Knowing how to remove big dents is all about knowing how to finish. If you can’t finish a small pitted ding, you won’t be able to finish a big dent. Big dents have many elements that are involved in a repair such as; crowns, trapped pressure, knocking down, tool selection, where to start and how to finish.
If you have questions about advanced paintless dent removal/repair pdr training, please either visit denttime.com or post a comment and we’ll be glad to give some feed back.
