Buy a New Budwiser Mirror and put it over top of it. Should only be fair.

I know you can fill in the cracks of paneling with dry wall mud to make it smooth but I don't think patching will work. You're gonna have to probably buy a new piece of paneling. That or just cover it with something. Paneling is a pain.

You aren't new here. This post sounds more like something the influx of white trash would post.

In answer to your actual question. The only way I have seen it fixed is with plaster and then paint the paneling white to hide the patch.

Is the hole big enough to see the trailer next to yours? If so, I'd just install a window. Maybe a stylish brass porthole.

a porthole would be tits but the bitch next door will steal it for meth. ill pack the hole with dirty diapers. that takes care of two problems. hole is fixed and the diapers are in their place. geenis.

I've been in your situation. Wife and I decided the best thing to do is take the hit and replace the whole sheet of paneling. After calling the Home Depot and verifying that they DON'T take the Bridge Card for home improvement purchases, we had to save a few weeks.

After a couple weeks we had the money to buy the panel so we jumped in the Camaro and headed to town. Well to make a long story short, in trailers they use 3'6" wide pieces of wood paneling, and I guess in a house they use 4' wide? We really wanted to seams to match because if anyone noticed they were off we would have to tell the whole story and that would be embarrassing.

We ended up spending the paneling money on a nice dinner at the Old Country Buffet, then went and bought one of those neon light guitar signs with a new credit card we got from Target. Not sure what the interest is, but they assured me it wasn't anymore than 25%.

Hope that helps!

you can use the bridge card at home depot and other stores who have hot dog vendors or cafite. . . eatir. . . . diners inside them. you buy a bunch of food on your bridge then return it for store credit. the hot dog vendors get pretty mad about this but a mans gotta have nails right?
