Garage Door VS black paint .. garage door won

So I'm guessing I should

Clean it with a kitchen soap (dawn?) to get rid of any wax thats behind, buy some automotive primer and apply it in 2 light coats, wait for it to dry, apply touch up paint in a series of layers. Then, wait 'till it sticks out slightly, and wet sand with the highest grit sandpaper I can get, then hand polish, wax?


Any insight here? It sucks because it happened on a curved portion of the hood, for those who care, I wasn't the one operating the garage door lol.


Can anyone recommend me a local place to get A good automotive primer for cheap, high grit sand paper, and a good Cut/Polish compound that I can apply by hand. I wanna stick to non specialty stores (ie Homedepot/Canadian Tire), Thanks.

oh yeah, here's a pic, as you can see the metal is visible

I found this, is this on the money as far as the standard procedure for this goes?

I know it won't be seamless, I'll likely be getting the hood, rear bumper, and some other pieces painted at the same time.

I think what you want to do is a little overkill. Just get some touch up paint and call it a day.

If you attempt to sand it down, primer, paint it yourself, and don't know what you are doing, you will probably make it worse.

its on the front of the hood though, its so damn obvious it's pissin' me off! lol

It wasn't my car either that it happened on, so I've got to get it fixed asap.
