Here's mine

the paint has peeled and short of matching it or polishing the whole MH, what would go well there as in muralistic scenes?

When the guys who fixed my grill were painting the left side, i asked them to touch up this peeling just to cover it. They said they didn't have time and that they would have to treat the aluminum so paint would stick. It would cost...I just wanted them to cover it temporarily. Doesn't anyone do little things like that for free anymore especially if they had the sprayer out? Guess not.

Couldn't that scrape be pushed out from the inside and wet sanded a bit? Seems to me it would at least not be a crease but a big scratch. Would that work?

Fore

Janet's posts reminds me of an Airstream owner who lived in an exclusive neighborhood, along side a golf course, in Florida.
'Seems not all the golfers were truely top flite and the trailer would take an occassional hit as these folks tee'd-off.
Although the guy was upset and frustrated by the ever increasing number dents in one side of his Airstream, he knew there was little he could do about it, if he wanted to keep the trailer at his home.
So, he cemented a golf ball into the worst 3 or 4 dents and let it go at that. I thought that to be a novel idea and it WOULD be a point of conversation wherever he towed that Airstream.

Hmmmm, now you got me thinking. I've got a bunch of what appear to be hail dings on the top front of my coach. Maybe I should apply one of those "fake bullet hole" decals to each ding.
