Default help : darken mesh

hey all, i hope someone can help me with this:

basically, i downloaded a obj. for some texturing pratice.
imported it in, but the mesh is darken....

i know the mesh can darken when: you soften an edge or have a face has more then 4 sides.

ive added some pics to sort of show you what i mean.

thanks.

Try selecting all the faces on the side and then harden edges. Or, you could delete all the faces on the side, then do a fill hole. Either way should fix the problem.

I haven't done much texturing but my first thought is that if I wanted to try and keep the uv's, i would just select those faces and then use harden edge under the normals menu set...instead of deleting them and using fill hole. But again, I haven't done much texturing so I don't really know.
