Unfortunately, I think they are raised just a little too high to be able to sand flat and still have clear to polish, but I'm tempted to try. If I'm gonna have to sand it down and repaint it, I might as well try it first.

Any other suggestions on repair options without re-basing and re-clearing the entire panel??
Please give full details about the panel from start to finish, ie, sand blast? soda? phospo, acid wash, sanding?
