 +Here is one way to pull and repair a dented gas tank. \\
 +Grind the paint off. Make a standoff and glue it to the dented area with high strength adhesive (Hysol used below). \\
 +Let it dry overnight or as the directions permit. Then use a slide hammer to pull the dent out. \\
 +Carefully remove the adhesive and standoff. \\

 +You can see the body-filler and primer layers in the first pic below. The entire tank has been wet-sanded with 600 grit. \\
 +The second pic below, there are a few base coats applied. \\
 +The filler material may require a primer to hide it during base coat. Then apply the finish coat and clear coat. \\
