Dent Repair- Apache ?
I am really pissed off today,after careful washing, polishing and WD40 ing like all true bhpians !, I parked my bike for sometime outside so that it fully dries up but to my horror and fate, a Cycle milkman fell on it , and on closer inspection I found the handlebar of the cycle made 2 very small dents on the fuel tank and exposed a black paint under the original grey paint,
is there any way to repair them?
and also is there any way to remove scratches on chrome ?
The Dent on The fuel tank , just above the apache monogram :

Bit difficult to make out from the pics. Can you post some better pics (from far).
Tank dents are veri difficult to repair. At the most you could do the small touchup job so that the paint doesnt peel off.

Yeah its pretty difficult to make out the size of the damage from the pics.
Having said that as v12 mentioned, its very difficult to repair dent's on a tank.
If the dent is small you'd be better of touching up with paint.
If its extensive, putty job + paint but finish will be a problem and you might end up painting the whole tank.
You can try a mild "rubbing compound" on chrome (water based).
It will not take out 100% but will reduce it anyway, yeah and make sure to apply some wax polish after that to prevent rusting.

Tank dents are usually removed using awkward shape rods by expert mech's.
Try any road side mech he will tell u what to do.
Once my bro's unicorn had a dent (cricket ball size) a mech used some rods and got it to shape then a painter matched the Color in a Computer and did the finishing cost 800rs in bangalore.
