Belly pan, banana wrap??

Not sure what the lower panel, below the bottom seam. It seems to be aluminum but is very stout. I have some dents that could likely be removed but sure need some advice.

The belly pan was originally aluminum. It’s not unusual to get dents under there due to road debris. Are the dents in the area just below the rub rail on the lower curved edge? Maybe paintless dent repair if they’re visible from 20’. They may pop out with a dent puller, but may be creased. Pictures would help. Good luck

Banana wraps are made from dead soft aluminum and dents are easily removed once they are removed. I've reformed several with my English Wheel. I have a full set here that were in much worse shape then yours.

Thanks. Was hoping I would not need to remove them. Looks like the trim would have to come off.

Absolutely. Try and pull out the dents with the trim in place. Get with Kip (Aerowood) and find out how he does it. Hope it works out. Good luck

If you are ever in the Northwest, reach out to the Dent Whisperer in Puyallup Washington.
They will do you right!
