Default Touch up paint?

Hi guys, when I was parking I unfortunately lost a battle with a concrete trash can which some idiot who works in the apartment complex thought was a great idea to put between two car parks in the middle of a parking lot.

Some paint scratched off (see the pic) and I would like to know if I can touch it up with some paint (I think my color is the metallic gray?) or how much would it cost for an auto body place to fix?


For some reason the photo is turned sideways, I think because of how I took the photo on my phone:



Thanks guys.

Not knowing the rates in your area I would guess not that much. If you can do some of the work yourself then a good body shop can do the touch up for a couple of hundred.

Seeing your vehicle is about 10 years old and judging from the paint it looks to be in very good shape. Why not sand/buff and prime yourself, then coat with Plasti Dip, do it on both sides to match. The job would be well under $100.00.

If you decide to do the work yourself, Automotivetouchup dot com is the place to order your paint code in a rattle can. You can also get the clear coat from them as well.
