    Any suggestions?
    If the welds are good and solid and there is no flex he can drill small wholes and use good bondo to fill it in and smooth it out, but that means he would need to paint it though.

    The other option would be using body hammers to work it out, but that seems like a lot of work lol.

    I couldn't hear any noises from the port...it is sprayed with truck bedliner on the outside of the port, and there's weather stripping behind the flange where it mounts to the box. It's a pretty solid port, not that I would do one personally.

    Tell him to use led, it will help add mass to the port as well and easy to shape.
