Well, you could try and flip the panel over to the reverse side, maybe it's in perfect condition. If not there's the option of replacing the panel or do like the old Dometics, cover it with vinyl sheet goods.

If Sundancer's option isn't the answer and it's just scratches, try buffing them out with cutting compound, then polish with polishing compound.

just have a kid (family, neighbor, bastard child...) draw pictures and stick them to it with a magnet! Problem solved.

It would take one of those 'special' magnets to stick to the material,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Yes, you would be correct if in-fact it was non-ferrous. However, this fridge either has a ferrous (with iron) material behind the aluminum or the aluminum itself has iron within its sheeting. Ferrous metals and alloys contain iron; non-ferrous materials do not. I know this because I have my sons pictures all over the fridge which is also "aluminum"

That as my smart-ass reply.
