Angry Used my local shop for a minor issue and they put a dent in my tank!

AARRRG! My local shop ordered OEM plastic fuel fittings from Ferracci weeks ago, which are coming from Italy. Having gotten tired of waiting, I order better brass aftermarket replacements, which come in one day, and they're CHEAPER! I go to drop them off at the shop and I see a quarter size dent in my tank right by the tank pad!!

Another couple weeks go by as winter creeps closer.

Brutale 750
Ducati 696
BMW R75/6

Ask Eraldo what he plans to do about the damage.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Were some of the Brutale tanks metal? Or was the plastic actually dented?
