    Hi all

    Just come back today on the ferry from Calais to find some small dents on the rear end high up at roof level but very unsightly and I won't be able live with them!

    Hymers a B544 2002, damage is just above and to the right of the Hymer decal.

    Any suggestions on best course of action? I have done small repairs on car bodies but not sure about working on alloy plus paint matching. Any advice or suggestions please.


    Cheers Dave

    Usual trick is to stick an amber reflector on it, with one to match on the other side .... that's what was done to ours and works nicely if it is just a small dent!

    Cheers

    Maybe the Funster stickers should come in a range of 'dent sizes' :BigGrin:

    Live with it !

    Ours has it's battle scars, it annoys me a lot but does not stop it delivering the goods.

    However, fill then cover with some nice custom decals is the approach I was thinking of.
