How did you repair the dent? Were you able to pull it out?

Looking good sofa!

Would love to know how did you repair the dent too, if you dont mind sharing. I have a dent on my tank that I am looking to fix.

Also, I am wondering if you used rattle can spray paint? Which one did you use? Tank looks good at least in the pics Thanks in advance!

Depending on the dent - either just fill and shape - sucking up the fact you're losing some volume. This is pretty common for the Monsters Ducati Ding as it's high up on the tank and really doesn't effect the volume. That common ding comes from the switch gear hitting the tank if the bike is dropped or lowsided. It'll be right by the D of Ducati on the left side and the I on the right

If it's in a different spot from some "miss handling" - probably starting with a weld on stud dent puller then reshaping. Or just some fill if it's shallow, or one that won't pull out


- Throttle's on the right. So are the brakes. Good luck.

The dent was from someone dropping the bike on its side from a practical stand still. The bar bent back and hit the tank, right by the D as mentioned.

I used the heat and cool method to "pull" the dent as much as possible. Once that was done I used lightweight filler to shape.

Frame color is Duplicolor Charcoal metallic I believe, I'd have to go look at the can. Its darker than the OEM ducati color. (Advanced Auto Parts) and then three or so layers of clear and then baked.

Tank is VALSPAR Yellow (Lowes)


and then VALSPAR Clear will be used


I used VALSPAR clear on my Audi wheels and it holds up very well. Although it doesn't have that OEM automotive hardness to it. I'm waiting about 2 weeks before I wax everything.

Excellent project!

I'm curious; do you know if the Paint/Clear coat you're using are Gasoline resistant? I've painted a few motorcycle tanks and usually use Rust-o-leum 'Stops Rust' Enamel because it is Gas resistant; However their clear coats are not Gas resistant.

If unsure, you might consider painting a test piece and then pouring some Gas on it to see what happens. **Instead of testing this on your bike the first time you get gas!

I'm just curious. Bad Experience: I painted a tank Silver once; it looked great until i wiped a drop of gas off it and took a layer of paint off with it!

Ok, yea. Take some sort of precaution for sure. It would suck to have your awesome new paint job get melted by a accidental drop of gasoline.

Keep up the good work though!
