I will keep an open mind as I am dying to learn new things. But everything in my being tells me enough heat localized with a torch is doing to burn paint. Second, the heat from curing filler on a late model hood will warp it for goodness sakes.
Like I said, I will keep an open mind but I am VERY cautious on this one. I have tried to do PDR, it is a whole different animal than "regular" body work. I can metal finish out damage using no filler but some of the stuff the PDR guy does blows me away and I have tried it, it takes TONS of practice to be able to pull off.
But everything in this heat and cool to remove hail damage goes against everything I have learned so I am very cautious.
