San Diego – Paintless Dent Repair – Removal PDR

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

San Diego Mobile Dent & Crease Repair

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.
