Re: pulling dents in frame?
I've repaired a couple of frames that had the dents you speak of. If the dents are accessible from the inside then you can tap them out with a hammer and a drift with a blunt end. Don't use something sharp like a screwdriver. If they're larger you may have to cut the inner out to gain access then have it welded back in after the repairs are finished. You'll need some panelbeating (bodyman I think is the US term) skills to dress the outer and file finish it if you're not painting it. Another tip with Aluminium, don't use a body file too much as the material is soft and will disappear fast. 80-120 grit sandpaper on a sanding board does the trick. I was a panelbeater for 13 years.
One day I'll get round to it.
