Default Got Keyed!!!



Yea my car has 2 huge key marks from some ***** at my school im assuming. or someone i pissed off in my neighborhood.

They keyed the whole spoiler, and a day later i had a key mark starting from my left read QP that goes all the way to my door and stops.. im fuming.

how much for touch up paint, and will it even blend?

or am i SOL and just have to deal with it?

just go to a body shop. if the scratch isnt too deep, they can probably get it out with a little compound. if not, then your looking at re-sraying the parts that got scratched. you may even have to spray some panels that arent damaged due to paint matching. i know because i was on the same boat for a year until last month. some ******* keyed my whole driver side from fender to fender.

minegot keyed back in October. They keyed the whole car.. litterally. Hood, both front QP, both doors, top, mirrors, hatch, front and rear bumpers, and both rearQP, headlights. My insurance paid for a new paint job, so i got it NBM with purple pearl. only thing outta my pocket was about 200 for the pearl.
