Minor paint scratch, paint shop?

I did the classical mistake, opened the door and hit the fence. What is your suggestion? How much will it cost to fix the paint scratches?

$10 for some touch up paint and move on.

Found it! Touch up paint motorcraft for school bus yellow! Thanks Rick

Put the touch up paint on VERY sparingly with a TOOTHPICK, not a touch up brush, and plan on putting on about 5 to 6 thin coats over a couple of days.

If you glob it on too thick, wipe the whole area clean and start from scratch.

Be patient...
 
Your a better Boss owner than me. I could never bring my car to the dealer for something so small and the location being not in direct view. How long will they have your car?

As four-walling stated using a tooth pick is good to apply spot / chiped paint. I also had very good luck with a Q-tip. The whole trick is to Prep / Clean the area and not let the paint run or sag. Again....Thin coats do the trick.

Good Luck

I take to the body shop for 5 min for likely 4-5 seperate days. They are applying multiple layers very slowly in 3-4 days intervals.
