G3 tower?  If you dented the tube there isn't much you are going to be able to do other than replace it. How big a dent are we talking about? Cosmetic or structural?

Check the tower base to make sure you did not stress crack the gel.  You gotta hit that tower pretty hard to dent it.  Is it the cross bar or front hoop?  Pics would help...

have a look at the pic.

gelcoat is not cracked. It is indeed the front hoop.

talked to a body shop and they advices to completely take off the chrome part, fixe the dent, and since chrome is very strong they will redo it (crime that is) so it will be basically invisible. 

Thanks for your Feedbacks!

Looks bad.  I'd consult malibu, and then order a new hoop.
