This is NOT an alternative for Denting.
I availed Mr. Sudhir's services in December, 2016. Front left door of my Ecosport (Apollo) had a dent due to some senior citizen crashing his WagonR into it cause they didn't hear my car's horn, for which I don't blame them.
I called him up and sent dent's pics. He gave me an estimate of ₹1500 and told me since it was a nasty dent, it couldn't be fixed at my place. It took me almost a week to meet him up due to our previous arrangements. Finally on D day, I went to his workshop at around 1:00 pm, a father-son duo had just started getting some work done on their Dzire. He completed their work till 2-2:30 pm and charged them 1500-1800 sth for almost 90% okay job. Then he started work on my Apollo and till 7:00 he tried to remove the dent but he could only achieve 60% effectively. Meanwhile, during his unsuccessful attempt to remove the dent he managed to bend that Gate leading to its misalignment and also damaged the sheet metal under the back cladding. After all this he asked me for ₹2500, claiming that Apollo's sheet metal is thicker than Dzire's and he had to use more material than he had expected. I managed to negotiate to ₹2000 and as I didn't have cash at the moment and suddenly my net banking had stopped working, he happily obliged to let me online transfer the amount later that evening.
I finally got that dent removed and door aligned when I claimed insurance for another dent on the same side from Ford Service station. No doubt Mr. Sudhir is a nice man, but I think this technique doesn't work well on vehicles from Ford.
Later in my life, some day I stumbled upon the tools, Glue Gun, he uses for so-called PDR on Aliexpress - 30W/40W/80W/100W Professional High Temp Hot Melt Glue Gun 30W Graft Repair Heat Gun Pneumatic DIY Tools Hot Glue Gun free Glue s-in Glue Guns from Tools on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group
It costs anything between 600-1000 only including Glue and the Gun and I don't think Apollo had warranted an increase of ₹500 in estimate due to use of extra glue which seems to be dirt cheap.
