Default imagine it dead?

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to repair the inside of of a spyder worn down by the valve cup seal guide? My imagine has dimples worn into the body. This prevents smooth operation and causes ball choping. I believe the guide is hanging up in the indentations and causing a slight hesitation.
How can I prevent this from happening again? I own five spyders but this was my first and I am kind of fond of my shiny green imagine, its my baby.

Find a local milling shop. But it will cost more than finding a used image.

yeah, you can find a used body for about $10 on here. or, you could just try it without the spring guide, not sure how that would affect performance though.

Thanks for the input. I only wanted to save her because she's my first. Kind of like my first lady of paintball.

Try using it without the spring guide. Should be fine.

Thanks to all responding. The old imagine is working just fine now, without the cup seal guide. Thanks Gramps
