    Hi, I recently pulled a big dent out of a '72 CB350 tank.

    I bought and used this dent puller...

    The dent was probably 5" x 3" and .5" deep.

    It was a lot of work. It took many pulls. Through trial and error I figured out that its best to start pulling from the edge of the dent and work your way towards the deepest part.

    The final result wasn't perfect, there will be minor fill work when I strip the paint, but it worked.

    Anyone have a specialist “paintless dent removal” guy that has performed miracles? I’ve seen some amazing results and have a tank I really want to keep “original”. It has a good size dent, but no broken paint.
