    Thanks for making these videos and sharing this info, I enjoy watching these videos and learning from it. I'm looking into making a career change from my current job into becoming a Collision Repair Tech. Your videos have confirmed my thoughts on making the change to this trade.

    Also if you have any advice as to repairing a dent on an older vehicle such as my 73 that would be great just because I know it's not the material they use today.

    Remove it bag it and have it thanks for all of the tips I just bought myself a 73 Dodge Dart I am going to do my best to restore it myself ever restored a vehicle before so this is all great information most of it sounds like common sense.

    comments below reflect as to why most men out there are so useless and pay another to do what they can't be bothered. It's the bloody attitude and laziness and impatience. Also if you don't like the intro there is such thing as fast forward or skip you dumb asses. At least that much you should know.

    Can I send you a Damage Photo for some advice….A 36" Cargo Door on a RV that Id like to learn how to repairs…maybe 80% would make me happy 🙂 have done wood repair and woodworking for years. I believe its Aluminum beauty Panel over another Aluminum 1 1/4" Box Frame with both pieces attached with Double Faced Automotive Adhesive Tape. So I can learn with advise :)…ed hass reno, nevada

    Very pleasant video to listen to! Unlike many videos or tutorials, you start from basics without jumping into terminology that people might not be aware of, and not using jargon without explaining what it means. You really give confidence to the listener both about yourself and the listener's capability. As others have said, it's not really a video, but that isn't the end of the world. Your pictures are (mostly) very relevant! Although talking about dating and lightning is perhaps a bit to much of a detour for my liking :-p both you and the listeners are often busy people! But like many, I'm sure, I'm very grateful for the time you invested in making this tutorial. I will  definitely be looking out for any more that you make.

    Stellar.  I'm lookin at a dent on hatch back…Kia Sorrento,,,2013.  Trying to avoid that body shop.  Desperate, actually…Any help is appreciated.  I'm quite capable of handling the deal once I'm lined out. Mechanically inclined and have the tools in garage. Handy dandy chicola is ready!
