Either way I hate to say it , but its not gonna be cheap.I do a lot of custom painting and I hate to say it but I've never seen a touched up scratch or something that has been blended that ends looking good. Especially with a really dark color. Sorry...some days I really hate people
It goes from the quarter panel to roughly the handle of the front passenger door.

I've never had this happen, so I'm unfamiliar, but it really does NOT look very deep, perhaps just the clear coat? But I could be dead wrong. If it's just the clear, does that make the repair any easier/less expensive?
