New PDR Tool Product - The Ultimate Glue Cutter

I used this glue cutter to cut through that tough hard glue on a BMW 3 series last week and boy did it work well. Super sharp teeth that can easily slice open your hand, so be careful and place it away from your normal grab bag or tool case. This tool needs a special area so you don't loose a finger!

For a glue cutter, it's a little pricey but way worth the struggle and frustration you save when releasing the braces that cause the dents to stay in. I have almost busted my knuckles using other glue cutters but compared to this ultimate glue cutter, I can't complain one bit.

Here is the video about the product and you can purchase the product from AutoLecture.com

Line Board Video Training Tutorial Part 2

OK everyone, here is another free demo I did about the line board and how I remove the common door ding w/out over pushing and creating a high spot.

Always keep your dent clean and manageable. The more accurate your pushes, the less you need to knock down. Now that's not always true for deeper dings and dents. Most likely you have to over push to completely remove the center pit out. There's more to that but you'll have to wait until I finally get around to finish editing my dvds. Or you can purchase the manual I have for sale at AutoLecture.com

Anyhow, take a look and watch the video. Please post your comments. I would like to answer your questions and perhaps do a requested dent and film it.

Scoin TC - Paintless Dent Repair / Removal PDR - Stretched Dent


Here's a dent I did with one of my really good technicians Eugene Baek. This dent was way stretched than we anticipated. The metal was very soft and hard to manage. One of the key things was to use a knock down that was not too sharp. Basically use a soft tip knock down or a cherry rubber tip to remove the crowns without putting tap down pits.

There was a lot of trapped pressure too and with the sheet metal being so soft, it would not cooperate very much. You really have to look for hidden crowns way on the outside of the dent. This is where it's locked. If you don't know where to look, you'll have the utmost hardest time getting rid of the dent.

Anyhow, this is how it turned out. Not 100% but pretty close.
