I know a lot of people are against Maaco for some reason, but take it there, Whole body repaint for around three hundred, and they guarantee it for five years no fading or peeling. I've seen plenty of Maaco creations running around Orlando and they look great! not top notch Sema show quality, but good enough for the local car shows and the turkey rod and run in Daytona every year.

any dings that do not damage the paint can be removed via paintless dent removal. it's a method that's been around forever but is just now emerging in the auto industry as a money saver for car lovers. it's usually 100-150 a panel depending on the car and location of the dent(s). they charge by the panel, not the dent, so say you have 100 dents on your door. they will be charged at a flat rate. paint damage can be hidden by an experienced detailer. the rule is, if you can dig your nail into the scratch, it's not coming out. your only option is a trip to the body shop which unfortunately is always a headache.
