Paintless Dent Removal Kit

I want to try to remove dings from a panel or two. I've watched PDR Pros at work and it looks like it takes a lot of practice. I want to try a starter kit, nothing to elaborate since I may not do this very often. I came across this kit. I like it because it has optional tips AND a training DVD which I very much want.
Anyone try this kit from Eastwood PDR Kit or have advice?

Looks like a fun little starter kit to get ya rolling..
Be sure and get some pictures and post up some how to for the rest of us...Easiest way to learn is to teach once you know even a little.

Only advice I'd have is never listen to those who say you can't do something..

I actually bought a set off of E-bay a year or so ago. Mine did not come with the board or any light, but had a lot of different shaped and size rods. I use them at work in a collision shop quite often. It is amazing how much time it saves me, by pushing out the dents quickly. I have had very few times that I have actually taken the effort to make the repair "paintless", but it does work, and take some practice.

The video that I got with mine does show some good points, but the main thing it will take it time.

I am not a big fan of the kits that have changeable tips and few rods. You will need different rods for access, and can get by with basically 3 tip shapes, being round, semi-flat, and pointed.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I will order just a couple of tools from A1 to give this a try. But I really want to see a video if anyone has a copy of one to share. If someone would send me their DVD, I can make a copy of it. I would be willing to pay for shipping plus a few bucks for the trouble via paypal.

Geeforce, do a search on youtube for a few short videos, I've checked out a few, it's an interesting concept, and works. The gurus here have given you some great tips, I've never tried it myself.

I also looked at some heat/chilling techniques, looks like smoke and mirrors to me, I've heard positive and negative talk about it.
