OK...so you'd think that a chick would be the dumb one to key some ex-boyfriends car. RIGHT. Let's try the other way around. And he didn't just key one side, he keyed both. And both times I couldn't get a picture of him doing it so he could pay for that crap. Now, I know insurance may or may not cover me getting it done myself. But I'm def. not all for paying some guy 1400 bucks to paint a line from end to end. So, does anybody know what I should do buy and how to paint the panels to get this done myself? I'm tired of looking at it! And it's making me not wanna do any mods! grrrr Any help with this is greatly appreciated, tx!

yeah but don't those leave like paint marks where the keymarks are? I used something once that was like a really thin brush that I got from the dealer but it left like a paint mark...I just figure that a fresh paint job would do it...I dunno?

take it up with your insurance if possible.
deductibles are usually low since the damage isn't done by you.

When some fool keyed my car it was $900+ and worth every penny.
They don't just paint a line from end to end. They will match the paint perfectly, and refinish the whole side of the car so it's blended and matched. And usually they offer a warranty good for many years, so the work done to your car is certainly better than trying to mask it your-self.

also depends on if they got into the sheet metal too...sometimes if its deep enough they total or have to pull the panels off and filler them over.....which sucks...


Also, tell ur ex that they are yellow because they keyed ur car...sound slike a girl thing todo, sad that a guy did it...but thats just me...
