Harley Davidson Motorcycle Gas Tank Paintless Dent Repair
Did you know that we also fix dents in motorcycle tanks?
Well we sure do, today we are working on a 2017 Harley Davidson Street Glide Screaming Eagle CVO. This customer purchased this motorcycle that was previously wrecked, he know choosing Paintless Dent Repair he would be able to save himself from purchasing a new gas tank.
We start out by mounting this motorcycle tank to our motorcycle tank vise. This is bolted into the ground and designed to mount this tank and fenders rock solid so there is no flex and movement when pushing damage out. We then use a leverage plate to have something to leverage off of in order to push these dents out. This leverage plate is mounting where the fuel injection assembly sits. We also have a specialty set of tools specifically for motorcycles to fix this damage.
When pushing damage out in motorcycles we have to heat the area we are working anywhere from 160 to 190 degrees at all time while pushing this damage out. This allows the paint to be more flexible and allows us to push this damage out without cracking or breaking the paint. Motorcycle tanks, especially Harley Davidson’s are much harder to repair than any other motorcycles and vehicles because they are much thicker and stronger.
