Well,
any advice on where to go and how much it might cost to get it re-touched would be helpful.

I'd get quotes from Don Roy in Chicopee (should be on most insurance carrier's preferred body shop list) and AJ's in Granby, MA (did my new deck lid and fixed a bad door ding).

Did you take note of who was parked behind you last night? It looks like a parking lot rub, i.e., low speed.

It could have been a her!
first quote from the garage down the street was 250-300.
But I think im just gonna fill in the holes with a little touch up paint and wait for someone else to hit me!

Damn Andy, sorry to hear! I've had some REALLY nasty cone marks that looked a little similar to that. I swear by Griots Fine Hand Polish to remove a lot of marks like that.

Whatever hit you was filthy though, and there's likely rub spots down to the black plastic...

Again, sorry To hear. Farging bastages.

Yeah those cones leave some nasty rubbery streaks down my side skirts! takes a good scrubbing to get those off.

The car that did hit me was most likely filthy. Here is whats left after a cleaning. looks like we're down to the plastic boys and girls

Looks like it cleaned up pretty well, at least considering what it could have been. If you need or want help if you go the touch-up paint route, let me know.

Mike.. are you good with touch up paint? I have a smaller rub (down to black) on my car too. Was my fault, and I left a note and paid for it... the guy was amazed.

Maybe we could do a AW touch up party down my way for Andy and me, with cookout, libations, washing/detailing, and maybe even do Brian's sways.. if the lazy bastard even buys some end links.

I'm not bad with it. You are going to have to accept that it does take a much higher level of aggression than just rubbing out a scratch (it will employ the use of paper backed abrasive products... sand paper... appropriate for paint applications), especially once enough paint has been used to completely fill the defect and then blend it into the surrounding paint. Vertical surfaces are harder than horizontal surfaces in getting the paint to fill consistently rather than just run. Also the AW over the black plastic may be tough to get the color to match. Is that enough to scare either of you off yet?

Sure! I'm pretty sure we all have little things that would buff out that we could take care of.

Nope, not scared at all. I figure I'll have to have it painted anyway, if things go badly. Worse comes to worse, it is likely better than the black mark there now. Andy, you up for an attempt too?

Don't worry, it won't go that badly. You should take a look at the driver's side of the hood on my car. It had chips all over it and now you can hardly tell where any of them were. I've touched up the passenger side but haven't gotten around to blending any of the spots yet.
