What dent ?

What do you think? Better than replacing the panel in order not to stare at a nasty dent int the alum.
I now have a security light. The switch is inside the AS right next to the bed.
Here are before and after pics.

Great idea - the only other thing I would have suggested would have been a bit of filler and your favourite decal !

Great idea. Looks like something the factory should consider.

Great fix. Sigh. If only we could strategically place all of our dreaded dents in areas conducive to great fixes!

I definitely got lucky on the precise placement of this particular ding. It's a strategy that can be used in rare occasions and not often or the AS can become a Christmas tree.
