Use a small piece of duct tape and rub it gently into the dent. Then slowly pull tape up and the dent should come up as the tape peels off.

I popped a pretty good sized dent out of a dustcap with a piece of dry ice one time ... super cold and the metal contracted. Of course, you have to have a piece of dry ice around and wear a glove when you handle it.

I've gone the tape route, too, I would recommend gaffer's tape instead of duct tape, though, as it won't leave any adhesive residue. Or just put a grill cloth on that sucker :cool:
