FELLOW MEMBERS, PLEASE HELP!!! :bawling:

This is on a new 2004 330 - I have a couple of scuff marks, rock chip (dime size) and small dent (dime size).

Should I fix it myself or take it to a professional? Can I trust the professional? :dunno:

Any recommendations for a rock ship/dent repairer in the Portland, OR area?

Your suggestion is greatly appreciated.

If your fingernail cannot feel the scuff marks, fix them yourself with any of many effective polishes.

Rock chips can be easily repaired by yourself using Langka (www.Langka.com). However, a dime size is fairly large so yo may want to go to a professional for this. Many good body shops don't want to deal with rock chips since it is very time intensive to do a good job.

Best bet for if you can trust a body shop is word of mouth and examining the some examples of past work.

Good luck!
