    Hey! Looks like I'm getting a Tacoma finally! Earlier thread here about the truck.

    There is a large swirl on the tailgate from being keyed; the current owner said he looked into having it fixed and was quoted $300. It doesn't look deep, but it's very large.

    Do you guys have any recommendations for someone who can fix it? Also, looking for a really good detailer, may or may not be the same person.

    Look forward to seeing you guys at meets and runs.

    Thanks!

    how deep is the mark? can you catch your nail on it? you can try wet sanding it then buffing it out to see if u can fix it urself. otherwise, just yelp a body shop in your area

    Try clay-baring it first. See how much you can get out... maybe some, or maybe none.
