    it bounced all the way down the side so there are nicks in the paint all the way down.

    what's my best/cheapest course of action for repair?

    edit: oh and why would my son do such a thing? what did I do to deserve this!?

    Is it just paint chips or dents as well?

    Depends on how deep the scratches are. If it goes through the clear coat, you're gonna have to bring it in to be painted. If not, try a good polish

    dents, you could try the hair drier/canned air dent removal

    I can relate. I used to have a 1974 VW bug that I had restored. My daughter decided one day it would be a good itea to throw a nice sized rock on the hood and watch it slide off. You probably will need to have a body shop take a look at it and get a price, then decide if you want to spend the money. Kids are tough to figure out sometimes. 5 or 10 years from now you won't even remember this happened. Can't sweat the small stuff.

    Q. what's my best/cheapest course of action for repair?
    A. Radio in the bathtub

    Q. oh and why would my son so such a thing?
    A. When not spreading disease, their role is to destroy what you cherish

    Q. what did I do to deserve this!?
    A. That thing with the heavy breathing.



    Though it won't be the first, I would have it professionally seen to, especially if its deep at all.

    My dog gives my truck the same respect.
    What did I do to deserve this?
    Did something happen when I passed out at that kennel?

    Cheapest - Toyota Touch Up Paint Pen

    Use a magnifying glass when you're applying it so you can fill the chip perfectly ... the touch ups can be really hard to pick out unless you're really looking. Results depend on how big they are of course, small ones are easy to fix. Chemically clean the surface before applying the paint so there's a good bond.

    Why would he do it? He's a 2 yr old boy ...
