I've had a dent on me tank for a while since a bit of a mishap. Any tips on getting rid of the fecker? I've tried one of the dent suction things and did no good. Is the tank single Walled? Can I push this out from the inside with a bit of a bent pipe or something?

TIA

You could try an air bag, summit like a blood pressure cuff (big one ) or fuel bag, shove it in the tank and connect summit to pump it up.....if ya can push it out a bit with some sort of pipe, be a bit arsey though, you'll prolly still need to fill it a bit..single walled.

Balls, was hoping that wouldn't be an answer. Sound though.

Yeah I saw some lad on YouTube cut a tyre in half close both ends and connect it to a compressor and stick it in the tank. Worked out perfect. Bit too much work for me. Might have a go at pushing it out with something. Single Walled is a plus.

I've used this kind of thing with some success - yours looks like it should come out

That's what I'm looking at. Seen a few on youtube, think the dent should come out with the right bit of persuasion.

Applying a bit of heatgun/hairdryer warmth will help
