   I'm not seeing any nicks...just a few paint chips...and what looks like light corrosion. I guess your term "divots" means paint chips. Tommy is right though, nicks in the metal will mess up light line, and wreck casting too. Your reel looks to be in great shape Parge...nice buy! Cool

Thank you all very much for the great advice! I did indeed use the term “divot” to describe the nicks. And as far as I can tell it’s just the coating and not in the metal. I will go ahead and carefully sand and refinish as suggested. The cleaning solutions info is right on time, that was going to be my next question. I plan to get started this weekend.
Mo, thanks for the parts info. Once I get the reel disassembled, I’ll take more pics of the questionable parts so I can get a complete list together for an order.
