Vous ne pouvez pas enlever des éraflures que vous devrez remplacer le
panneau entier.

L'alternative doit polir le bas de page entier et "mélangez" les
éraflures dedans. Il aidera, mais ne se débarassera pas des
éraflures entièrement.

Bonne chance,

Smily

Well now that's kinda cool! But what does his mother wearing combat boots have to do with skin repair?

I would look at those paintless dent repair companies. They might be able to help.

Panel replacement. Nothin is gonna get those deep scratches out totally that I know of. The small dent can be flattened a bit, but the panel is pretty damaged overall. To get it like new again, replacement would be my first thought.

There are two options to consider.

1. Replace the damaged metal.

2. Cover the damage with a hospital blanket. That will let everyone know that there is a "patient" under some type of recovery.

Talking Lots of character!

If this is a bit of character building, then our '61 GT possesses lots of it!

Cover up!

I had an old faded sticker on my 79. Rather than scrape it off and make a bad situation worse, I covered it up with a plaque.

You cannot see the fine print on the plaque but it says

Vintage

1979

It is above the Sovereign plaque next to the door

Does it add mystique to misspell words?

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.
