Default Re: Dent in gas tank?

I dented a tank a while back, stupid, I dropped it, and needed a way to un-dent it. I made this little swing arm hammer thing that I can insert into the fuel tank and hammer away by manipulating the wire from the outside. It works great on small dents that aren't creased too bad. The weighted thing on the end was just something I found in a junk drawer. It fit on the 5/32 stainless welding rode and even had a set screw to keep it there. I made this one just to have the desired reach for the dent I was working on but one could be made to reach the full length of the tank and adjustable for shorter reaches.
