    Sorry man, that totally sucks! Trust me, a body shop is your best bet. A scratch that deep is a TON of work to fix properly, and you’ll need a bunch of supplies as well. By the time you get everything together, and the amount of man hours you’ll have into it, a body shop repair will be well worth it. Also something your insurance company would cover, but the repair itself may be less expensive then your deductible depending on your coverage.

    Here’s a video giving you an idea of how long, and the amount of work it takes to do it right...

    Good luck man!

    I don’t think it’s mundane at all. Just saved me a lot of money. Been looking for a while. Just ordered it! Thanks

    Damn the belt went out at 85k??
    I had a 93 Toyota pickup that had original belt at 260k when I sold it.

    Just curious, did you check the belt tensioner or just install a new belt and call it a day?

    Appreciate it! I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya and yes, they are definitely easier to clean. I used some armorall marketed for vinyl and plastic and a microfiber to wipe em down after installing since my sweaty handprints were everywhere.

    Washed with Meguiar’s carnauba plus wash and waxed with Meguiar’s ultimate polymer carnauba paste wax. Love these products. Have been using them for 15+ years and always happy with the results

    That was the point of the post lol
    And letting it rest against the truck is a mod?

    I installed some LED lights in my 3rd Brake light.... surprisingly easy. You do need a torx bit, stand in the bed, unscrew the lens, pluck the incandescent bulbs, insert 3 LEDS. Easy.

    I only had 2 so left the middle stock and now the LED's light up quicker than the stock bulb so it's a very quick strobe effect, though I am going to put the third in there when it comes.....

    they are noticeably brighter and since I was rear ended once it's hopefully some cheap insurance to prevent that.....

    194's is what I am showing as the size/bulb type and a pack of 10 was under 10 bucks so super cheap too.
