Where's the dent? If it's towards one of the ends you can always hack it off and make a stubby out of it...

Just turn the can 180 so the dent is toward the bike and no one can see it.

Yep, it's f*cked. You could drill out the rivets and try to reform it... The good news is, you can't make it any worse.

I'd at least try to hack it up to see if I could make it useful... Possibly powder coat it the color of your bike...

You might be able to push some out by hand, but the little ones will be tough... Patience and a small (REAL SMALL) ball-peen hammer...

the only prob i see with the taylor made is the pictures they post on the website seem that you have to get rid of the brake light, on base i have to have that to pass inspection
