Repair dents in the non ttl pentaprism for Pentax 67

Hi everyone! I have bought a well used Pentax 67 with a non TTL pentaprism. I have seen lots of prisms at ebay and have concluded that its "normal" with dents and scratches. Have anyone tried to fix such dents and could help me with a tutorial or something? I would also like to maybe do something to the housing and some lenses too, but the tutorial i found had no pictures anymore due to a dead link. Any help is welcomed.

Best regards Bj°rn

That sounds difficult. You could fill them up, sand them and repaint them but it sound like a lot of work. Did the tutorial have any written instructions?

I guess the main issue would be disassembly of the housing. Otherwise it would be typical sheet metal dent repair - tap out the dents, fill with putty, sand, prime, paint.

Not a Number is right about the process. I will add that getting it to look like it did when new is pretty tough. If you just want a nice smooth surface going "custom" could work.
