    Default truck was keyed...

    some gutless coward keyed my otherwise gorgeous 2008 sierra on the front edge of the hood. to have the hood repaired and painted is a waste cause nothing is going to look as good and last like a factory finish (not to mention they'll never match the color).

    any suggestions?

    i was thinking a bug deflector, though those look like sh*t too...

    See if you can't knock it down some with some rubbing compound and a old t shirt.

    What color is the truck? Shop around for some painters, there is this guy I know here in Waco that can do very well on matching colors. He can even manage to make the paint look like it's been in the sun just as long as the vehicle! Pretty talented young feller.

    I'm surprised a cinder block hasn't fallen from a plane onto someone's car roof. Those things happen, you know... it's strange when they do, but they do.

Never had a truck that new, but I liked the ones I had, so you have my sympathy.

    I'm gonna speak from experience. A F-Wad keyed my truck and stole my GMC symbol at a local mall. It was maybe a mm wide and 4 ft long. I took it to my dealers body shop and they repainted and matched it for 300 bucks, which isn't bad. Better than those paint touch up markers....
