Very nice work! Can you talk a little about how you got the tank in such nice shape? (My XT500 tank has some dents and dings, and needs straightening)

The tank cost the most to restore,i tryed air pressure but wouldnt do anything.So it had to be opened up and with a bit of heat and gental pushing out the dents it eventually came out the hole welded back up and tested for leaks,then it was polished,painted and decals fitted then finally laqured.

Wow, that's what I was afraid of. I've seen some videos of people working out dents using dry ice and a blow dryer (heat differential creates tension?), but that's on steel sheet metal. My tank is aluminum.
