Dented Exhaust Header

I have a dent in the bottom bend of #1 exhaust header and am looking for suggestions as to how I could remove it.

How about this...I was considering filling the bend with water and then letting it pipes sit outside for a while in the below freezing temps and see if the dent would pop out as the water expands when freezing. Thinking about the double wall tubing construction, I would want water in both tubes. How far down the header does the double wall go? I'm thinking I can pour water in the header where it bolts to the motor to fill the inner tube and then remove the bolt in the bottom of the pipe just ahead of the heat shield and add water to fill the outer tube.

You guys think this might work without rupturing the pipe? Or anybody have other proven solutions or reasonable ideas? Thanks much.
