sounds like you need a new painter. they have ways of getting the dents out without painting. I have connections on this if you need them.

now, that sounds like a cool idea, no pun intended. I wonder if it would push the dent out or swell and push everything out. maybe a 2 gallon tank might end up being a 2.5.
somebody smack their tank with a hammer and try it. inquiring minds wanna know

i think if I was to do the freezeing thing i would keep a close watch on it. As the dent has distorted the metal abit it would be the first to "move" back into it's original position. Also my opinion would be that it would take a crapload of pressure in the tank to make it "explode"
I KNOW that water has been used alot in the past to remove tank dents again i just don't remember the details, was thinking that the gas cap was removed and some type of plug or cap was put into place that would "regulate" the pressure in the tank. maybe some type of rubber freeze plug?
also if u was to use the spot welding tool above i would sure wash the tank MANY times with water and then also weld with it FULL of water to insure that it didn't explode from any residule vapors.
again just my 02 tho

Is the dent a clean dent with clean bends or is it sharp and crippled? If its just a clean dent, i would think those little suction cup deals would work. If not the spot weld puller will work but you will still need a bit of bondo to clean up the finished product.

Yeah on little dents but the dent surface has to be really hot to work. I have removed hail dents that way before. The dent on my 900RR tank is pretty big I will work on one of these days man I miss riding that bike why did I have to do that 90+mph wheelie:BangHead:
