I suppose if the dent was crushed up good it could be reinforced enough that you might unintentially push something out of wack. You'll always likely still have the hardened crease to bondo. If I was restoring I'd still think cutting a hole in the tunnel and tapping with the right shaped tools might get a perfect finish, but then you'd have the patched hole. I don't think I could be the restoration type. At my house it'd eventually get damaged again anyway.
I'm my case it seems the force needed to pop the dent back up was less than he force needed to push or deform other sections.
As lefty mentions, there is still a slight ripple on the outer perimeter of where the debt was... Stretched metal I suppose. You can feel it but it's better than before.
Well, in any case it's better than the method used by the idiots I went to high school with, who dropped a lit cherry bomb into an SL350K0 tank and closed the cap... it's amazing they lived to tell about it, but the tank looked like an overgrown football afterward
