Discover the Artistry in Hail Damage Restoration and Forge Pathways to New Market Opportunities

Each year, severe hailstorms wreak havoc across the nation, leaving vehicles pockmarked with dents ranging from quarter to golf ball-sized on their panels. In response, insurance companies globally have recognized Paintless Dent Repair as not merely a “viable alternative” to conventional auto body repair but as the “preferred method” of restoration. Hail Repair Training focuses on this innovative approach to traditional auto body repair.

Stu – PDR Training Master Instructor

I’m Stewart Reynolds, a proud veteran who embarked on a remarkable journey with the United States Air Force in 1981. My dedication to duty led me to serve in various capacities within The Minuteman II and III Nuclear Weapons Systems, culminating in a fulfilling 38-year career. Throughout this extensive service, one of my most cherished roles was that of a Weapons System Master Instructor, where I held a Top
Secret security clearance, indicative of the trust placed in me.

My passion for teaching and mentoring, nurtured over the years, has seamlessly transitioned into my current role within the esteemed family at The Ding King. As a former student turned Instructor, I bring a wealth of experience, technical expertise, and leadership skills to the vibrant community here in California.

Beyond the classroom, I proudly manage my Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) business back in Butte, Montana, showcasing my enduring love for cars. The fusion of my military background, technical acumen, and leadership experience has garnered the trust of Todd Sudeck, the President of The Ding King.

Teaching at The Ding King is not just a profession; it’s a shared journey with a tight-knit family of coworkers. The family-run ethos is palpable, creating an environment where everyone feels at home. My personal mission at The Ding King is to ensure that every student receives an exceptional education.

It’s an honor to contribute to the growth and prosperity of our students, and I couldn’t ask for a better work environment and family.
