As a PDR technician, you will want to make sure that the work you do on a vehicle is going to withstand the harshest of weather conditions. This means that there is not one single job you can do that can be less than perfect or you will be the recipient of the worse kind of customer, the one that comes back to you wanting you to redo the job you have already done. Not only is this a huge waste of time, since you will not get paid for the redo, but it is also the worse conditions possible to deal with an angry or disgruntled customer.

Putting together a simple quality control program can alleviate or even prevent any work from leaving that may cause a warranty issue later on. From the start, your main goal should be to eliminate any possibilities and this is why a simple checklist would go a long way for repeat business, not redo business which has no monetary value.

In today’s market, with metals changing and steel becoming thinner in an effort to create a more efficient vehicle, it’s difficult to tell how long before corrosion takes hold of the metal and causes permanent damage.
