Nice find Dan.
A block of wood, a rubber mallet and some white paint and you'll be good.

Little dents aren't as important as the true shape of the parabola - did it pass a string test?

The 6 foot prime focus dish had the lnb arms messed up when they took it off the dish off the roof. I have to do the string test but to me when i look it over it looked fine. The other dishes i will get to them next week. I have to make up my own mount for that dish. I see a Directv mount for that dish.
