Banana Wrap

I removed my damaged banana skin the other day to start the repairs. Tools used: a cheap rubber mallet from Harbor Freight that I cut the face into sort of a wedge and then took a body file to round the edges so the face is curved in one direction. Instead of a shot bag, I used a skinned memory foam kneeling pad for gardening (was a Brookstone item) and preceeded to pound away on it. As mine is a "Painted Airstream", it didn't have to be as perfect as a polished one and the slight imperfections left were easily taken care of with a bit of bondo. Total time for the repair after removing was less than 2 hours plus reinstallation and about 15 minutes of Bondo work. As you can see from the photo, it was not a small dent.
