    Are there any kits that have the bulk of tools needed for pdr?

    if not, does anyone have a list of tools/techniques that you’ve been successful with?

    Hey, thanks! That's the thread I started. I bought a cheap kit from Amazon and realized you get what you pay for. The ones on Amazon are too weak and will flex. It limited me to using the shorter tools. I tried to learn it, but it's definitely hard. Takes lots of practice and you gotta watch a lot of how-to videos on youtube. I thought I could turn this into a hobby, but you gotta invest is quality tools, which I think for a decent set of tools will run you at least $500 minimum.

    I was browsing for something else and saw this thread. So for future searchers...
    I'll second this. I purchased this kit: "Mookis Dent Removal Kit Paintless Dent Repair Kit" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0773P9BCH

    And I, too, realized you get what you pay for - it was a pain.

    The hot glue would stick REALLY well to my truck, but not the cheap plastic pullers themselves. No matter what I did, the pullers kept popping off. But the glue stuck to the truck so well I had to use a heat gun to get it soft enough to remove.

    After a lot of effort and frustration with the cheap puller kit, here are my results:

    I had three similar door dents. Pictured to the left of the heater reflection is one of them. I was able to get them about 95% out and just have to do some filling and paint correction in the chips now.

    If I could go back, I'd spend more money on a better kit.
