Is that just bondo? I have a friend in auto repair and he fixed a tank for me. He said they welded a small stud in the dent and used that to pull it out, then ground it off and smoothed it out.

Depends on how heavy the damage is but its really small and minor so no need to weld. For example here's a 675 tank with small dent.

Bumping.

Thanks for all the info, Jericho. I gotta repair a good sized dent on the 675 I just picked up, and I just bought the 2 gun "professional" HLVP set from Harbor Freight. Not the high dollar gun you got, but there's a ton of awesome reviews for them online.

Now I just gotta pick colors...

You don't really need high end spray guns to get OEM quality, some guys can get away with $30-$60 spray guns and make it look good. The only thing with Harbor Freight guns is there lifetime use isn't very long.

Here's a recent job I did for a forum member...

yeah. I figured I am only going to paint a few times, and maybe use a gun to spray finish my woodworking stuff occasionally. No need to drop a lot of cash.

You can just rattle can if your trying to go cheap as they do sell it in matte black. The only downside is when you do go for the real job or have a painter do it for you it becomes more work.
