Does anyone know about the success of removing a rather long scratch down the side of an AS? It's kind of blackened with age, but I'm wondering if it will become less noticeable when the trailer is polished using balrgn's formula. I have a dent in the rear upper street side too; however, I'm sticking with the firm belief that it gives the trailer character. Also it may make any dents I put in it less noticeable.

I made the tool, so I guess you could call it a Kiprollertool. It is basicly the contoured "anvil" or the top roller of an English Wheel.

As Andy states it will not be perfect, but the big dents will look 95% better. I took out the smaller dents and creases with perfect results. The biggest problem I had was gitting in a hurry and pushing to hard. I took alot of dents out and I Challange someone to find all that I removed. It worked alot better then I expected. If someone wants to critique the results they need to have their checkbook out, and ready to buy.
