Metro area pipe repair?

After an oopsie involving a tree last week, I'm in need of a quick repair job to bang out a dent in the pipe of my 800 Pro.
The pipe has insulation over it, with a crimped-on shell holding the insulation in... I haven't popped the shell off yet, but I'm 99% certain there's a 2"-round x maybe 1/2" deep ding in the pipe itself.

Any recommendations for local shops that can do that sort of fix?
I'll get some better pics later tonight...

pipe repair

Vickery Motorsports has some very good welders in the shop, If it was me I would ask for Doug M. I know he could fix it up for you.

About what I expected.


Not huge, but it should probably be repaired.


Shield took the brunt of it, but I can bang this out easy enough

Plug the ends. Fill it with water and put it in the freezer. The dents will come out.

I see the "extreme bumper" you were talking about on Wednesday.

Hmmm... Not so extreme.

Did you ever find someone with the skills? I've got a tweaked 2t pipe that's not sealing right and leaking exhaust at the manifold. Mostly just pushed back on the left side.
It would be nice to find someplace local to NOCO to save the shipping costs.

Took it to a buddy's place, wasn't too hard of a job.
Clean off the dent


weld some threaded rod to it


rig up a clutch spider nut tool and some washers/nuts to pull out the dent


Chop off the threaded rod, clean up the dent


rattlecan, so it doesn't rust


Banged it up again later that season, dropped my Contour and a flashlight in there and shook it around...


...not even gonna worry about it.
