I see them in the background, but did you happen to document your work on the pontoons? I'm curious how you accessed the interior (if you did) to knock the dents back out. I have two NOS, but all four of the OEM look like they ran into something, or more likely hooked a rock and rolled it between the track and the nose of the pontoon. And I imagine it happened on a lot of pontoons.

So, I'm thinking plasma cutting the bottom to gain access to be able to knock everything back to smooth, then reskinning the bottom would be the way to go. Thoughts?
