Pitted aluminum 🤬 please help

I have about 3/4 of my interior skins done on my ‘72 lane yacht restoration and someone at my storage yard drove over one of my large $150 4x12 pieces of aluminum 🤬

Is there any way to save it?

Thanks y’all

Unfortunately, it's not likely able to be restored. If you post a picture that shows what you are dealing with - it might help understand what the issue is. But it sounds like the "pits" may be from pebbles & debris on the ground...?

Do you know who did it? Can you get them to buy you a new piece?

I'd have to agree with Shari, just be happy they didn't run into your trailer.
