Here is a different twist on repairing large dents that really cuts down repair time for me. This is a Mercedes SUV fender that was backed into by a boat trailer. What makes this repair different is that it was done without any conventional PDR rods or tap downs. It was fixed with two dollies and a master tool. My original charge was $675, and the body shop estimate was just over $2300 because it was written for a new fender and lots of blend time etc. I ended up giving him $100 off the bill because he took it before it was finished because he couldn’t see anything left to fix . The total time was 50 min including the crappy photography.
This repair was stopped above the 95% level because the customer couldn’t see anything left. This guy is a repeat customer and belongs to the local Porsche club, and used to send me work, so I let him watch. Normally I would not have let the customer watch a job like this because they go fast, and people think your screwing them no matter how bad it looks originally or how much money you save them LOL.
