Well I think you should do the tests before you declare that. Comeon Brian, where is your sense of fairness, I really enjoyed your dry ice tests.

I get a kick out of those guys, they are obviously real DRP guys and they are making fun of what they do. Well, not making fun of what THEY do but of what people think they do.

A good PDR guy really does some amazing stuff. I thought I would start doing this around the shop and I played with it on panels that were getting painted anyway. It isn't as easy as it looks, basically you need ten or twenty a day and after a few months you may be kinda good at it. I still use the PDR tools all the time for dings that are in a blend panel or something that I can bring up, then block flat with 600 and they can paint over it. I can still do a decent job on them, getting them close enough to block out using the existing paint and primer as "filler". But to do REAL PDR, I just don't have it.

All you really need is a guy who doesn't get winded and has strong fingers.

Some of the comments are pretty funny.

Brian

how to remove a dent with a finger: Go to a repair shop and poke the owner in the eye until he agrees to fix your car for free.



He uses one finger to get the dent out he uses his thumb to sit on while someone who knows what their doing fixes it.


Is this guy making different videos of different methods to repair the same the dent he still hasn't suceeded with?

This guy wasn't as successful on the same dent, as the pdr guy. He was able to get the same dent out three times with different methods.
