Be patient. Often time’s frustration will only hinder your progress. If you find that you’re experiencing difficulty with an exercise, take five minutes to regroup your thoughts before resuming the repair.


Practice. There’s no substitute for practice. Only practice will allow you to achieve speed together with the quality results you desire.


Learning + Patience + Practice + More Practice = Quality Repairs

We hope that you enjoy your training experience and wish you much success with your new business!

PDR is the process of removing door dings, hail and other dents from a vehicle without sanding, filling or painting. It is achieved by accessing the panel from behind or via glue pulling. This is accomplished by gaining access to the inside skin of the metal and meticulously massaging the damaged area until the dent is fully repaired. 

PDR is achieved by locating the tip of a dent tool into the lowest part of the damage. By carefully exerting pressure, in the correct location, you’ll slowly bring the metal back to its original form.
