Oh F*ck

At 9:15 on Friday I oppend the window in my study and sat down at the PC, the wind blew, I heard the bedroom door slam then I heard a noise that made my stomach churn and a blood curdling scream emitted my mouth as I realize what had happened. I entered the hallway not daring to look but eventually took in the scenec of carnage.
The bedroom door slamming had caused a large Ebony African tribal mask to fall off the wall hitting and smashing a light switch then landin on the control section of my recently finished SG.
The damage doesn't show up too well in the pics but a knob was smashed, the volume pot shaft is bent and there are three deep gouges in the body.I havent even thought about how to repair, the pot can simply be replaced but the gouges I don't know what to do.I'm still in shock - I need a drink

The offending item (bit of Voodoo going on here I think)

Damage report Scottie!

Strip down, Volume Pot and Knob needs replacing.

Fill gouges with paint and lacquer mix, then polished flat with compound

New Gold reflector knobs and hey presto!
