So I wasn't sure where to put this, so I thought I'd start here. My truck has been the victim of a hail storm and has multiple dings on the hood and roof. There are also some misc scratches and one dent on some body panels, mostly on the rear fenders.
I took it to a reputable local auto body for an estimate recently. He seems to think there are too many dings on the roof and hood for paintless dent removal. He also indicated that there are too many dings to use body filler on the hood. He pointed me to the following options:
A. Replace the hood and the roof (cut it out and replace it) and then have the rear end of the truck repainted.
B. Have the entire truck repainted.
He seemed to think that option 2 would be the best way to go as it's more comprehensive. However, he could not recommend any shops that would do a paint job on the entire truck.
I have two questions:
1. Does anyone know of a reputable shop that would paint the truck in the NJ/NY metro area?
2. Are there other options that I'm overlooking here?
Thanks in advance.
