Helmet v3.0 – Dent Relocation

How To Move A Dent

Since the dent in this dome doesn’t appear to be in the right spot, I’m going to fill it in and relocate it.

I used my dremel to rough up the surface of the dent so that the material I use to fill it will have something to grab to.

I decided to use Bondo for this because it enables you to fill in large areas, sets up really quick, and it easy to sand/carve to the shape you need. While examining the dent, I noticed the top of the dome is a little “flatter” than it needs to be. So, I added some Bondo in that area, as well.

After sanding down the Bondo, I used a template from thedentedhelmet.com to position the dent in the correct location in reference to the turn signals on the front of the helmet.

I added in some packing tape to act as a “form” to hold in the Bondo until it’s set.
