Dent

If there isn't a crease in the metal then I might try one of those paintless dent removal places. Might cost you a little cash but they work really well. There can't be a crease in the metal or it will show when you get them coated though. Good luck.

What size primary ? On sbc stuff we use a 2" or 1 7/8 trailer ball and run it in the tube. Capping both ends and air with a welding torch works. Worst case you can use a tig welder pool up ans dab filler and then metal finish it. Kinda like bondo lol

dent

If you're going to have them re-coted anyway why not just weld a pin in the middle of the dent and use a side hammer to pull it and then metal finish it. That would seem the least expensive solution to me.

Welded over the dent and then ground it down. After they got ceramic coated you cant tell it was ever there.

Most any body shop has a pin welder and dent puller that goes with it. Shouldnt take more than 15 minutes for the right guy to pop it out that way.

Uni-spotter. Almost every body shop has one or maybe you could barrow one. It uses a gun to weld a small copper pin to the dent, then you use a slide hammer on it to get the dent out but if it's really small, I would just pull up on the slide hammer handle and hammer around the outside edge of the dent. (Hammer off dolly technique)
