Thumbs up Paintless dent removal works! - PA/NJ

I don't want to fill up this area with a plug for a dent guy, but I want to let everyone know that in the PA/NJ area I found a guy that does good work, brought my baby back to like-new condition. 2 door dings (minor, one in each door) and one ding on the quarter panel (major) removed for $100.00! The doors are perfect, the quarter is only noticeable because I knew it was there!

Thin sheet metal means easier to get dings, but the good side is that the dings are easier to remove! If anybody wants his contact info, email me privately.

For the doors, he inserts a wedge (commonly used when using a slim-jim to unlock a vehicle)into the door where the window retracts (with the window down), then inserts a long metal rod, bent at one end with a rounded tip. Basically he then uses the rounded tip to "roll out" the ding from the inside of the door. Then for finishing touches (I think to smooth any lines from the rod) he uses a soft plastic pencil-like thing and a plastic headed hammer to tap the outside of the ding. No drilling, no damage.
For the quarterpanel dent, he drilled a small hole in the door jamb under the b-pillar, and used the same type of rod, just longer. Again with the pencil thing and hammer. To plug the hole he used silicon sealer and a rubber plug. The plug when inserted is flush with the body and actually looks like a factory job. No silicone visible, most people won't notice the plug at all.
So you know, I've been around body shops and in the auto salvage business (years ago), and I figured that he was going to use some fancy new tool to remove the dings. It takes some finesse with the rod to work the metal the way he did. I was impressed!
I also watched him do a car on the lot before I let him touch my car. I don't take any risks with my car, especially something that involves drilling or reshaping metal!
