Cost to repair dents/paint chips?

So Im curious what the estimated cost would be to remove the dents in the pictures below and the paint chips, also correct the incorrect touch up paint... Advice would be appreciated. Also would there be a way I could fix this up correctly?

Most PDR people will charge 75 to 100 per dent. Paint repair is outside my knowledge.

In your 3rd photo I think you could do it yourself with Dr. Colorchip and get good results

In your first pic a PDR guy could probably get that out but it looks like you have a break (crack) in the paint. There is a new clear process where they can bond to the clear without repainting the whole fender. I forget whats its called, but the clear they spray on bonds to the existing clear and its polished so they don't have to do the whole panel.

In your 3rd pic, I think you need a body shop as it looks repainted,

Just my two cents

Really for just a small dent? How is it done? Could it be done by someone like myself?

I know that the guys that i take my car to have any major paint work done quoated me about $350 for fixing a dent in my pasanger door repainting. I dont think it should cost you too much, BUT make sure they use a decent quality paint... I went rouge once and trusted some 'other' guys to paint my rear bumper; their paint job didn't finish out smooth and reflective like stock paint.

If the dent is something that can't be pulled out.. the whole body piece would have to be sanded, fixed and repainted which gets expensive (mainly for cost of paint). I was quoted $700 on one dent for supplies and labor for 1 dent on my door.

It's crazy little minor things like this cost so much. Is it possible insurance would cover this?

Insurance will cover it, I had something like this happen. $1000 to fix, but it was def worse off then what you have. So I claimed it to my insurance company. Honestly it doesn't look that bad, I would try fixing that myself. For the wrong touch up paint, what did you use? Maybe get the Langka blotter remover and try that? I just used touch up paint and the Langka system and it worked great!

Depends on your policy. I have full coverage so any and all cosmetic damage is covered as long as I pay my part of the deductible. For other people who have lesser insurance, they'd have to check their policy to see what kind of cosmetics would be covered. That $700 I was quoted from the body shop that I mentioned in a previous post was not with insurance... that was direct from the body shop if I were to pay the whole expense out of pocket.

I pay $50-100 per ding. I go to a buddy who does cash, and I usually wait until I have 3 dings and then he shoots me a number.

I'd like to learn more about Dr. Color Chip.

My car is in the shop as we speak for dent/paint repair on a marble size dent/paint chip in the "shark gills" fake brake vents on the driver side with 2 smaller "shrapnel from initial impact" dents and paint scuffs. Costing me $640 bucks.
