    It's probably going to set you back about $500ish. I was quoted $700 for rear door and quarter panel (small panel) because someone that scratched my car and it went over two panels 😤

    ETA - that's for metallic paint

    You can buy touch up paint and do it yourself ( paint over the scratch), but its obviously not the same.

    I had a panel that was deeply dented and I ended up getting another door put on which I sourced at a wreckers. Cost me less than 50 which is better than the 500 or so I was quoted . Might be another option.

    Ok. DH has the following suggestion. If the scratch is to the metal it needs respraying. If it is not, you can polish it down.

    Pretty much hard to suggest how much as it will depend how deep/whether it is dented/how big the scratch is. So best see a professional is the advice from DH.

    I had mine buffed by a so called professional and they stripped it back to the paint layer (took the clear polish coat off) and left it at bare metal along part of the edge of the door which luckily just looks like sun glare because of the metallic paint.

    Moral of the story is don't get anyone to buff a deep scratch because it looks worse in the end. Needs a re-spray for sure!
