Mercedes Benz Deep Paintless Dent Repair – PDR Training

Post from Dent Time blog

When I saw this dent and I knew I had to at least take some photos and document my PDR process. I never get tired of taking photos of my work. Besides, it’s really not work. To me it’s having fun doing what I love. Paintless Dent Removal has become my passion behind marketing my passion. I also train PDR personally as well. From beginner to advanced, I share my passion and devotion to paintless dent removal and the auto reconditioning market.

Now enough about that. Let’s briefly talk about this dent repair. It is quite intimidating indeed for any experienced tech. Although if you are an experienced tech, that feeling only last briefly until you begin to perform the job. Tools were essential. Wrong tools, wrong results. Although it takes more than tools to gain good results. A little patience, correctly reading the board and of coarse… experience.

I used a bladed shaved door tool (Ultra Dent Tools) to do most of the dirty work. I also used a knock down from (Dent Craft Tools) or (Dent Gear) to remove the crowns and highs. Now I can’t just rush into the center. If I do, I will cause an oil can effect and then it will be a done deal, game over. I work from the top, then tap. I use this technique back n forth and switching sides in between so I keep the dent balanced.

Little by little within two hours, I have completed the job. No sanding, painting. Just one happy customer and a little satisfaction.

Being a well rounded paintless dent repair / removal PDR tech means you can adapt. From deep door dings to large and stretched dents, you should be able to handle about 90% of the dents come your way or more important, you take on.

Performing large and complex dent repairs do pay off. Some PDR techs think there is no money doing these type of repairs. We would like to disagree. If your time is valuable and you do above average work, you can very well indeed make a great living doing these type of PDR repairs. Come to think of it, most people are not as concerned with small door dings as they are with big dents like in the diagram.

Advanced PDR training is a good option to consider if you plan to be doing PDR for a awhile. Even in some cases a dent is not going to come out 100%, you can still make a customer very satisfied based on what you had to work with in the first place. Before we begin a repair, Dents like these we are always clear to the customer they will most likely notice a slight wave or indentation near the body line. It is almost certain with clear and upfront communication, your customer will be happy.

Although there was much more involved with this dent repair than what was shown in the diagram.This diagrams gives a sneak peak of the basic PDR Line Board Manual that is now out on sale at
