[DML] Re: re brushing panels

I do have a few scratches that would take a little more than just
using a blending pad to get them out.  So when it's all said and done
I think I would rather have a professional to do it for me.  Speaking
of dents, I do happen to have a small dent on the bottom of the
passenger's side door on the front corner and I hear that is a
difficult area to get worked on.  I live out here in Ohio so is there
any idea who could work on the stainless other than having it shipped
to Texas or New York to get fixed?  Thanks!

Has the scratch turned into a dent? If not then you can do it yourself.
