Yes. Metal dust caps can be worked on with the right ratchet wrench socket. Picking one that fits inside the rolled flange and can act as a mandrel to hammer the dust cove back into shape. Repositioning the dust cover in/on the shell/freehub body/cone using the socket as a assembly sleeve is another trick. Andy
