My 1st (and hopefully last) curb scratch

Well today I nicked at curb while parking and I'm not happy to say the least as it’s my first scratch/ding or any sort on my car, is it salvageable? And if so how much am I looking to have to spend to fix it? (And yes I know my car is dirty, but won't be for much longer)

It's very fixable. You just need to find a local shop that can do it. Around here I found a place that would fix it for around $60-80.

Ouch. I feel your pain. My first self induced ding: I stopped for coffee and drove onto the parking lot curb with the nose. The first ding: highway chip to the top of the nose. Luckily a friend runs a paint shop; 100$ to do the whole nose off the frame!

Don't beat yourself up over it...I did the same damn thing!!! It can be fixed without any problem, I just haven't done it yet. And I may not either, because it happend on a very special day for me and it just might serve as a reminder.

thanks, I'm trying to not let it beat me up, but it just sucks because it could have been avoided I just made a stupid mistake. Oh well I guess something was bound to happen to it eventually, now I'll start lookin around for places to fix it.
