I’m Kip Allen I’ve been in the auto Body industry since 1979 rebuilding totals until 1982 moving to DFW metroplex working in the dealership Collision industry working every job from painter to body man production manager to estimator. Achieving ASE Master Paint and Body certified and recertification, ASE Estimating Certified also I-Car Welding, Eight part and aluminum certified. In 2003 the monster Dallas storm was the first time insurance recognizes PDR as a viable repair excluding State Farm. I started with PARS training it is the best move I could have made.In 2016 I started DRP Hail Solutions Inc with numerous bodyshop accounts of my own and have a small shop in Mckinney Tx accepting hail damaged and dinged vehicles by appointment.
I do subcontracting across the nation on the Hail trail for PDR Linx.
I am excited to be a part of this elite group of ARC master certified technicians to use a tool and add to my years of Napdrt membership benefits. Some day I would like in the future to see ARC along with Napdrt which is already associated with ASA and PDR Nation all get together with I-CAR and ASE to come up with testing certification program that would be recognized by the insurance industry.
