Will your dent roller work on the stainless steel segment protectors on the front of the trailer? Ours have accumulated quite a few dents from rocks and another road trash and I hate the way they look. I know I can replace them but I am looking for a more cost effect solution.

Thanks for your assistance.

As the roller portion is made of aluminum I'm not sure that they will work with stainless steel. It's not something I've tried. So I'd say no, as I don't want to sell you something that may not work.

Do you think it would work on this? It's over the bathroom and doesn't leak. I believe I can remove the inner in once piece correct?

I have one of Kip's rollers, and as good as it is, you would need some serious horsepower there. Maybe a form pushing from the inside using a jack??
Dang, what caused that? I had one on the opposite side, caused by a branch. It was not as bad, and I popped it out with my hands.

That's a pretty good dent, did a bowling ball fall on it. As stated above I don't think my roller will help you out. A panel replacement would be in order here. If you found someone with a English Wheel that knows how to shrink and anneal aluminum, it could possibly be fixed but the labor would end up costing more then a panel replacement.

That dent looks like something hit the trailer then someone tried to push it out from inside. A very hard dent to remove. Should be possible to get most of it out but it would be nearly impossible to get it out completely. If you want your trailer to look perfect, looks like you need to replace the panel.

Yep! Colorado Springs. It is a Warbird restoration company there….those Guys can't resist an airplane photo op. Wish I was flying with you guy on that plane. My last Herk was Southern Air Transport (in the Good Old days.)

We saw a Corsair in the pattern for runway 35L. The tower was trying to contact him, he must have been having radio issues. I believe the last call to him was a request from the tower to land. I had no idea there was a restroration company there.

Southern Air Transport, I believe they did "Government Contracts".
