I don't do PDR, but work with some guys who do. They've been at it for about
1 1/2 years I believe. They seem to be doing well. The dealership where they get the majority of their business is a lot they both used to work at. The sales manager gave them a chance and there they are. One of the guys is better than the other, simply because of doing more. He told me even though it's been 1 1/2 years, it took him that long to get to where he is. I've seen him take out some pretty huge dents. As far as money goes, I'm not too sure. I'd guess $1,500-2,000 / week on avg. between the two of them judging from what I see. Plus, hail season is coming.
Hope this helps.
