Paint repair

Hi

I have a small but deep scratch on my bonnett, about half an inch, it looks down to the metal. Anyone know if that is a respray or can it be touched up and blended somehow? ooh and any ideas how much roughly im looking at to fix this?

Danke shane.

If the metal is dented \ deformed at all, then you'll need the "Dent Doctor" first, then "chips away" ...

However, a respray of the bonnet and bumper is a good alternative - I had one nasty stone hit and a few minor marks - got the respray done (with nasty solvent-laden real paint !) last Spring, and not a mark since then ! ...
