  1. Buy a new car!! Just kiddin. I would suggest contacting the dealer to find the exact shade of blue. They typically sell little touch up bottles. If not, you could always put some clear nail polish on top of it to seal it.

  2. Look at it 10 feet away and it magically disappears.

    Kidding aside, I would get a good paint cleaning wax like this and see if you can rub it out with a clean slightly damp cloth: [https://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-Cleaner-Wax-Liquid-Protects/dp/B0002NYE5M/ref=sr_1_27?dchild=1&keywords=paint+clean+paste+car&qid=1597252535&sr=8-27](https://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-Cleaner-Wax-Liquid-Protects/dp/B0002NYE5M/ref=sr_1_27?dchild=1&keywords=paint+clean+paste+car&qid=1597252535&sr=8-27)

    If it works, to be sure, you can get a little clear coat touch up pen like this to apply a little protection to the area: [https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Toyota-00258-0000C-21-Clear-Touch-Up/dp/B009VJXG5W/ref=sr_1_3?crid=TTXYQB8GCJ6N&dchild=1&keywords=clear+coat+touch+up+pen&qid=1597252710&sprefix=clear+coat+%2Caps%2C226&sr=8-3](https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Toyota-00258-0000C-21-Clear-Touch-Up/dp/B009VJXG5W/ref=sr_1_3?crid=TTXYQB8GCJ6N&dchild=1&keywords=clear+coat+touch+up+pen&qid=1597252710&sprefix=clear+coat+%2Caps%2C226&sr=8-3)

  3. If you zoom in it does appear to be down to the metal through the clear and color at the bottom around the distortion. Depending on where you are you could expect to see an hour to 2 hours repair time plus the refinish. If you don’t address it (again depending on where you are geographically) it very likely will rust.

  4. Depends, if its deep then a filler and touch up paint then wet sand. If it is only clear coat wither polish or wet sand 2000 grit then polish.

  5. I would first hit it with some rubbing compound if you can catch your fingernail in it it’s past the clear coat and would need touched up which is never perfect. Using some ultimate compound should cut it down a bit where it’s not so deep and you might be happy with that. If that doesn’t do it for you, you can buy touch up paint and clear then do some wet sanding and buffing to get it flat.

  6. I have no idea on how to solve your problem. Just wanted to let you know I saw the landscape in your picture and thought you were posting from a plane o_o
