The Damage done

Well if you didn't see my post in the blow off section, My truck got keyed on the hood

Hard to get scratches to show up in a pic on a shiny red truck







Now if I can buff out the first pic
Then I may do this



If it won't buff on the outer lower section then maybe this



Or get it repainted red again


So what do ya think?

I think the first black looks amazing. You should most definetly do that. but make sure you get a pit bull to tie to the bumper so it doesn't happen again.

Ya know, I really really think you scratched your truck yourself.

Usually the process for keyed trucks goes like this.

> Discover key marks
> Look around for people nearby to lynch

While you somehow made a few photoshops to see what your truck would look like.


But nevertheless! There's a process for you to fix your truck without paying expensive money, and which denies you a nice paintjob, other than making it go back to normal!

Okay here's the link, it seriously took me 15 minutes to find this stupid thread.

I like the first pic also.If you paint the whole hood black it looks like you just took the hood off of a black truck and didn't get it painted.I also think repainting it red would be fine too.

I say go with the first repainting job with just the dome part and the grill black, The bumper doesn't need to be painted, imo.

people are such *******s.

with that said, i like the first option you've put. if you do an entire black hood, it's going to look like you got a replacement hood but couldn't afford to get it painted red again.

Yeah, I like the first one too. WAY cool looking.

They really call that a Power Dome? Does it give it more power or something? Yeash...like the power bump on old Eclipses.

Dude...that really bites about someone keying your hood. Makes me want to break som fingers off some teenagers...or do you have a vindictive ex-girlfriend!

I've been thinkin about painting that part of my hood as well. I have a yellow edge and Im gonna paint the raised part black but leave the middle 4in. part of the hood yellow...I think it will look nice, just a suggestion.

checked my policy, only $100 deductable, so it going in on the 1st for paint.
Going red again.
$1100 estimate.
Stripping to bare steel
taking the flares,lights, emblems off
blending the fender tops and re-clearing to the bottom of the fenders.
Picked up a deflector today to put on after its painted
