I have a Mazda 3 hatchback. I put a 7" x 7" scrape on the panel above my rear tire when I turned too close around a stucco wall. In a few spots it looks like it removed the paint down to the metal. No dent.
This is the panel that extends in that thin strip up and over my doors to the windshield. The gas door is also part of this panel.
My expectation is that it needs to be buffed out and that the whole panel needs to be painted.
I have that pretty red with the sparkly fleck. I’m wondering if the Mazda people are the only ones that can get their hands on this paint color, so maybe I have to get it fixed at the Mazda dealership’s body shop?
Any wild guesses at what I’m looking at shelling out for this, just so I don’t have a heart attack when I get an estimate??
