that sucks you got in an accident, howd it happen
your 'fender'i need to get that whole chunk of metal above the wheel fixed/replaced
Get it unpainted and bring to body shop to get it matched.Your car's paint has weathered so will not be the same as when it left the factory. If you get it painted, it will look very obvious that it's a patch job.MykeLefty said:ohhh, right. i'm an idiot and forget the name. so i can buy a new aftermarket one on ebay for about $80shipped (unpainted) or for just under $200 shipped (painted). im going to a place on thursday and he's gunna give me estimates of what he'll charge....so we'll see. :disappoin
it does a good job. id recommend u get it from the dealer. and also have some paint brushes cuz the paint brush that the touch-up paint comes with is really crappy.i don't mean to thread jack, but can someone tell me how good a job using touch up paint looks? is it easy to use?
Thanks for the reply. Our toyota dealer here doesn't even stock the red antifreeze so I'm sure they don't have any touch-up paint. If I search for it online, what do I have to look for other than perhaps the paint color code?amerikim said:Touch up paint is great for stuff like rock chips and edges of body panels that accidently get scratched. Not big flat surfaces like hoods and trunks where some assh0le left artwork or fender benders.
