MC tank repair in SF East Bay?

Got a dent in my metal gas tank that I need removed. Had a pretty good dent removal guy give it a try and was unsuccessful. Can anybody recommend someone in the east bay of San Francisco (like Concord) that could deal with this?

What kind of vehicle is it?The problem is that it is explosive.If you drop the tank and pull the fuel sender you can get a 3' 2x2 in there and pound the dent out.You cant put anything in there that will make a spark.Might be better just to get a used tank from a wrecker.If its a pick up truck sometimes its easier to pull the bed to access the fuel sender.If you can drive about 70 miles and want an estimate to fix it send me a pm.

I'd give Mike Rose a call at Rose Autobody. He's got a heck of a reputation out here and will know the place that can help you. If that doesn't work, try Mike McGuire over at Walnut Creek HD. They used to do some custom work and he's pointed me to good people before for other types of work. Still failing? Try Mike (why are they all Mike?) Felder of Mike Felder Insurance - he does bikes only and is in Concord too... He's an avid rider and been around forever here.
