I recently restored mine, and ended up covering them in vinyl that matched the original texture really really closely. I'm super happy with how it all came out, I will get some pics tonight and post them for you. Tedious process but mine had been sanded before, had speaker holes cut in them, were cracking near the screw holes. So they needed a lot of love to get back to useable.

Do a search over on the SAAC forum. There is a fellow in the Detroit area who fixes these panel to like-new. Hint: use 67 or 68 in your search.

Thanks for the reply.

So do the following:
1. Easy Off Oven Cleaner
2. Wash Panels w/ water/dishsoap
3. Wax and Grease Remover
4. Fill/repair cracks
5. Paint?
That’s what I did. I do However like what Bob suggested regarding the silly putty to duplicate the texture in areas that repairs are needed.

When washing, I can’t stress enough that you need to use something that removes grease, oil and silicone. These embed themselves in the Fiberglas so getting the panels clean of these materials is a must before repainting.
