You obviously love a challenge Grin

Image 29,38 & 39, tell me more Thumbs Up

I managed to put a decent size dent in the side of my van when I squashed (or didn't) an industrial wheelie bin and that looks like just the system to sort it out. I assume those bolts/mushroom thingies are stuck on with Araldite or some epoxy resin type adhesive, how do you remove them??

Just a glue gun and pullers ,readily available on Ebay, have to pull them quite a few times though to get the surface nearly flat,this is the one I used

I am very interested about that thing to remove a very small dent on the CB fuel tank but I've heard too many horror stories about the glue pulling off the paint. Modern Honda paint is not exactly the strongest stuff around. think
The alternative is old fashioned bodywork repair... £££

Hi Kak , yeh do have a proper metal puller, but seemed a lot of trouble for this job, as I had rubbed down the area first it wasn't a problem, but have also used it on the Blade for a small dent, the trick is don't leave the puller on it on too long and ease it out with a few tries Grin

I've found a chap with a high end version of that dent puller who's willing to fix the CB tank for me for a small sum. So I am draining the tank and bringing him to his place over the next couple of weeks.
If you don't hear back from me it means the paint has been stripped from the tank and I've had two strokes at the same time. Wink

You people have to tell me your secret for selling bike and parts: I have been trying to sell a BMW seat for 18 months with zero luck. Not even slashing the price in half helped. think
