Default Tank Dent Repair Western NC

Hello Forum, I have a dent in my 2003 anniversary tank from my knee when I had an accident.

Does anyone know where I can go to get the dent finessed out with that special heat process? I am trying to save the 2003 Anniversary stripe and after calling all afternoon I am stumped.
I live between Asheville NC and Johnson City Tenn. Any help and direction is greatly appreciated.

I wasn’t aware of a heat process.

I know of paintless dent removal. The use a variety of tools to accomplish that.

This is kinda what I was talking about. It is a "Paintless Dent Repair".
Why can't I find a place in Western NC? This is exactly what I need for my tank.

I see it now... he’s using a little heat to keep the paint soft so it doesn’t crack as the dent is worked out. That is a tough example with the deep crease.

Give these people a call?
