    Dent in bumper (Brand new ski...)

    So I had to modify my double trailer to fit my brand new 2012 RXT-X 260.. So I was putting on trailer (moved it from the left side rails to middle after modification)

    We had the crank in the middle and a crank on the left side. I didn't take it off before I cranked it up on the trailer, because it wasn't really in the way...Well, the rubber gromet was sitting on the side and didn't think it would've hurt it. Here is a picture of the bumper with a dent in it..any ideas on how I can get it back out?

    Thanks for the idea, we had thought about it. But its just too cloudy for it to do anything right now. :\ Its supposed to be sunny tomorrow, so I will be riding it tomorrow and afterwards, will sit it in the direct sun.

    Try a heat gun?

    Too much localised heat from a heat gun may warp it. Leave to bake in the sun a few times before trying anything more drastic.

    Very first time I strapped my new RXPX 260 down to the trailer, just to get it home, I ended up with dents on both sides of the ski in the bumpers where the straps went. Modified my trailer to have anchor points further back so I could use the transom loops. These new bumpers are good for bumping but deform easily.
