I have a dent on the same bike, same color, in the same location. You could use those weld on pins and use a slide hammer. Still have to bondo it though. Maybe just live with it or buy a new tank.

2 main options.
1. As said above, spot weld pins and slide hammer it out then skim with bondo

2. Cut that little section out, pound it back into shape then weld it back on and skim with bondo. No way your fixing that without bondo sense you cant get a dolly in there.

I'm ok with a little bit of bondo to get the shape to be nice - But I don't want to drop a ton of bondo to fill in the whole.
I'll look up some of the weld sticks + sliding hammer. I thought those were pretty expensive but maybe not.
Thanks for the input!

na their not too bad. You can weld the studs on with a small tack and you can buy a slide hammer at harbor freight for about $60. Or if you dont want to spend the money im pretty sure you can rent one from auto zone for like $10. The studs are like $10 for 200 of them.

I know it works for exhausts but I doubt it would work for a tank. too much surface area for the ice to expand.
