If you're considering a repaint, perhaps a paint restoration would be in order? It costs much less and preserves the superior quality of an OEM finish while restoring to its natural brilliance and gloss.

Regarding the actual damage, it's impossible to recommend whether a touch-up repair is possible or not. Quality touch-ups are very labour intensive when performed with the correct methods and quality assurance. Try posting up detailed pictures of the affected areas.

For the dents, seek out someone who performs PDR (Paintless Dent Repair). The process removes the dent by gently easing them out using various tools and is quite inexpensive when compared to traditional bodyshop repairs (which use bondo to fill dents and then repaint the area).

I provide a different type of service than a bodyshop. During the summer months, this is a mobile service I provide in the GTA. At present, however, I am located in the Kitchener/Waterloo area.

Although the vehicles I service to be of a higher cost than average, the value of the vehicles I service is completely irrelevant and bears no reflection on the quality (or lack thereof) of an automotive refinishing business.
