You could fix them yourself,jump them like they are or take them to the factory in Norway where I bought them for repair. Either way it would be great to see you out of your comfort zone with your eyes popping out
PS There are no perfectly good planes on a DZ.
Jumping out of an airplane was originally the last ditch effort to save yourself when the plane lost all ability to fly during WW1. I'd rather stick with the bird and ride that baby down.
As far as going to Norway, I think I'd save my money and go back to the dealer and and have them fix it. If they didn't agree to fix the holes or lines, my problem would be with the dealership not the factory.
