Well, hate to break it to ya, but they're terrible, beyond repair, gonna need a new set..yeah...unhuh, no good, yeah..and umm you can give them to me, seeing as how you won't be needing them anymore, yeah, um.. :p

Seriously, they don't look to be in too bad of shape judging from the pictures. If you are REALLY careful, you can remove some of the dings with metal forming hammers (ones that look like a teardrop on a handle). Use some hobby files to knock down any small high spots, sand out the file marks with 400 grit, wetsand with 600 and buff with a medium compound such as tripoli. If you are looking for a high luster shine, follow with white rouge (less cut more luster).

..but if you'd rather believe my first statement, i'll PM you my address. :p

George does excellent work, and I would highly recommend him when you want them restored. I would be hesitant to do much straightening myself. To clean them up in the meantime, I've had very good luck with 3M rubbing compound and a soft rag. It will clean off the stains, & give it a nice shine.
