Does anyone know of a place to get stainless steel cans repaired? I have some light scratches etc. on one can that I would like to get polished out if possible.

It's not that dificult to do, rub out light marks with wet dry, use some 400/600 to start, work through to 1200 grit and polish with solvel.
Mine had a dent near the weld, just drill a small hole 1mm for a self tapping screw use the head of the screw to pull the dent out with a claw hammer and a block of wood. Just cut off the screw and file flat and pollish as above. The finnished job is almost invisible and the screw filed hole
