Default keg's leak...not the lid.

So i've got a few kegs and it looks like the keg itself has become misshapen around the lid. I'm going to try oversized / softer o-rings to help seal them, but if that doesn't work- what are my options for repairing these corny kegs?

The gap around the lid is very uneven and the leak severely without any pressure...with about 30 psi of pressure they'll seal, but that's more than i want to hold on these kegs.

Ill try to take pictures tomorrow when less intox'd.

You have multiple kegs that are damaged at the rim? And lube doesn't help?
