    Hi all,

    This is actualy for my wifes 2003 4Runner.

    As I was washing it today the powerwasher took some paint off the side mirror.

    Is this too big of a spot for touch up paint and clear coat? If not how hard would this be?

    Or should I just take it to the shop? Any ideas how much I would be looking at? I know its Toyota Black 202.

    Thanks for any help.

    Well a shop will make it perfect for about 150. Your touch could look good but will still look like a touch up. What do you want to do?

    Well, I want it to look right. It's a pretty big spot and I don't have any experience touching up a spot that big. Guess I'll get an estimate.
