    Default Patch a small dime size paint chip/scratch 09 Silverado

    Recently installed a new Bak Industries BakFlip Tonneau cover on my truck. Had a buddy help me and he leaned the tonneau cover against the bed of my truck while I was inside moving around. The metal bracket on the tonneau cover scrapped off a dime size of paint right down to bare metal.

    What is the least expensive method to fixing this without it looking like crap?

    What would a body shop charge just to fix a dime size scratch and will they even waste their time on it?

    Ask your dealer if they have paint chip guy that comes in. I have seen them do some good things.

    this is probably the way. Ive been around alot of dealerships and have seen these guys do some incredable things. plus there usally alot cheaper than a paint shop.
