    PDR FTW!!!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Well once again Chris The Dent Guy has performed his metal magic on my car. Last Thursday an inconsiderate motorist backed into my car and left a sizable dent in the trunk lid. Chris had a chance to work on it today. I'll let the pics speak for themselves ;-)

    If you live anywhere near South Central PA it would be worth a trip to see Chris if you have any body damage with intact paint. You can make an appointment and he can fix it while you wait. He repaired my trunk in ~1-½ hours.

    Needless to say I am a happy camper!!

    That is insane! I have heard of this type of repair but didn't think they could fix your without the paint cracking...I'm sold but a little far from the Seattle area!

    I knew they would be able to get that out. Depending on the techs years of experience they can get almost anything out. Glad to see it saved you a new trunk

    That is some nice work! The fact that he was able to remove the dent on a bend shows some skill.

    I had a PDR guy do some work on my e30 and he removed 30 dings, some of which were truly mind boggling, and saved me a bunch of money taking the car to the body shop.

    Chris fixed the trunk and a small dent on the front drivers side fender (a little internal damage from swinging my hammer at the upper control arm pinch bolt) for $200.

    I don't think Chris does any wet work, just paintless repairs.

    If you look real close you can see signs of repair work. But just walking around the car I doubt you would ever notice. Considering the price and the ability to maintain the factory paint you can't go wrong.

    I could write something cliché and insightful, but that would be too cliché and insightful.

    Gotta say I'm impressed he got that one out! I can see the repair area on the inside license plate pocket area, but for what it is, only a trained eye would really notice. Unless you knew to look there, no one will probably ever notice! The guy my shop uses is pretty incredible too and has been doing PDR work for 20+ years and I refer people to him a lot! Nice works.

    Damn, nice to see the dent guy could fix this, I was interested in taking a look at him myself but it seems to be a little out of the way for me (in DC).

    Glad to see it all worked out!

    I only know him from the work he has performed for me. I first met him about two years ago when he repaired some damage on my hood. He is a very personable guy and he doesn't mind at all if you watch him as he makes repairs. And yes, his work is amazing!
