    Default Im fuming - cars been keyed!!!!

    Anyone have any idea how much to respray a rear door and quarter panel?

    Ive suffered some severe key damage (very large deep X and some deep scratches on rear passenger side door and quarter panel - and on a metro blue car they really stand out) and Im raging. The worst thing is that Im pretty sure I know the culprit (I have to dismiss ppl on occasion as part of my job) and it seems this is whats let to this.

    In my younger days Id have got the situation sorted, but Ive a wife and family now so I wont get drawn into somthing like that.

    Sorry. Rant over. Im just so ****ed off.
    Anyway, ill get pics up tomorrow, but anyone any idea how much this could end up costing?

    Things like this are an utter pain in the rear end (to be polite), hope you find a place that will do it on the cheap.

    takes a big man to walk away, well done. Sadly that kind of thing happens but as someone said those smart repair guys like chipsaway are pretty good and cheap.
