Need advice on how to.

If that does not work put the can over a steel pipe and lightly tap around the dent with a hammer (easy it is aluminum). This process will leave a poor finish (like a sack of walnuts)
If that does not work let us know what did work

Tried sth similar, but with metal rod and its a no go.
Maybe cutting out the beat-in part, hammering it close to perfection and welding it back.
Will decide end week.

European ebay is very poor with yammi used parts, thus making those few quite pricey.
Oh i see, well I am still interested on how it goes. (I might want to give it a try)

Nice to see someone putting some effort into repairing their equipment instead of just buying a new one. Be sure and post your finished pics for us.
[COLOR="Green"]What kind of statement is that?Maybe those people that just buy new equipment instead of taking the time to repair have a life full of obligations other than being in the garage [/COLOR]

I'd like to keep it more technical and less intrusive if you please, thanks.
