Is there a process or can a bike shop fix a dent in The gas tank of a '99 CBR F4? The dent is a good size about 2" wide and 1" deep. I seem to remember reading a solution for this somewhere. I hope its not too expensive.
trying that standing on the gas tank las vegas extreme stuff again, huh?
anyway, you can try paintless dent removal, i saw it done on a bmw tank.
the views and opinions expressed by tony (cbrf2boy) are the ramblings of a total idiot. sbw.com, it's administrators, moderators, and members don't necessarily agree with and are not responsible for anything this idiot has to say.
You can drill a hole in the tank but you have
to be super careful. You will still have
to fill and sand it anyway you will just
use less filler. I would use something
called Mar Glass or a similiar product.
Best way to go about it bro, go to an auto
body supply store and show it to one of
the counter guys, usually they are X painters
and are very very helpful. Plus if there is
anything new on the market they will let you
Definitley take it to auto body supply.
If the front wheel's in the air, Your front tire you will spare.
I would suggest NOT drilling a hole. That is an outdated method for fixing most (not all) dents. There are several very good kits on the market that most decent body shops will have that use an adhesive to glue a disc to the dent and then a puller fits onto the disc to use as a slide hammer. I have used this myself with good results ofcourse it's still going to need some filling and sanding.
