Panel dent

Well the wind got me. Was opening the door with my hands full when the wind snatched the door away from me with the key still in the lock. Put a small crease in the panel. Is there any way to get the crease out of the panel or am I stuck with looking at this dumb mistake forever?

No way to really pull a crease out as the alum has already stretched. You may make it look slightly better, but some degree of scar will most likely always be there.



If it bothers you, you can get a panel overlay to the damaged panel, but panel overlay and/or panel replacement are not inexpensive.

Put a badge or something that gives you pleasant memories over the dent to hide your misfortune..

Good idea. I will have to find something that seems to go with streaming.

There are a few threads that share some ideas about covering blemishes in the skin.

Here's one>
