    I was parked at my local HD shop when I came out an noticed I had a very minor dent on the top of my 2002 Deuce rear fender. Any suggestions how I can remove it myself or does it have to be done by a professional? The paint is not scratched or chipped, its just a small dent. Any help would be great.

    Is there a crease in the bottom of the dent? If so this might make it more difficult to remove the dent without damaging the paint.

    Hey Davidw2415,
    No, there's no crease. The dent is very smooth.

    I have had some luck with using the back of the handle on a craftsman screwdriver that is rounded from underneath the dent. You can actually see where the screwdriver is pressing on the metal if you look closely and you "work' the dent up using some passes in both directions across the dent.

    When I did it, you couldn't see where the dent was when I was done. Take your time and do it a bit at a time.
