	Sorry I can't tell you more.  I was so upset that I'd been keyed
I went to the paint shop (an independent paint/body shop) and said," take
care of it I don't care what it costs".  I do not usually say things like
that due to the fact that I'm a student.  However, it only ended up
costing $60, I think. . .  I believe they were able to repair the
scratches with a quick respray and a whole lot of buffing.  But what
ever you do don't use the touch-up paint!  Please!
