I think some stupid a** got to close and it's caused by a truck mirror ... Doesn't matter at this point .. any tricks on how to fix this dent ? I'm thinking tackling it from the inside panel.
Just went through this on my BMW. Got hit by flying debris in a really difficult spot to repair. It's very upsetting.I'm thinking about that ..but being slow right now for a pay check ..it may have to wait a while ..it bugs the hell out of me I been outside bout 20 times tonight to look at it. lol
Hopefully the DA ( think Red Foreman) that did this will have a bus load of karma dropped on them.
Red Forman would say shootin's too good for what the scum who did this deserves.Hit and run is like horse thievin'. Fair trial and shooting seems appropriate.
I know this will sound ridiculous, but I've been very surprised a couple of times at how much difference touch-up and buff can make on pretty nasty gouges. I should have taken pictures, but I've got wrinkled steel that was down to bare metal that I have to point out before people notice.
Did an insurance claim with my full coverage. $500 deductible. ☹I know this will sound ridiculous, but I've been very surprised a couple of times at how much difference touch-up and buff can make on pretty nasty gouges.

If you pick off all the flakes on the bottom left corner and get back to solid paint, you can spot touch it pretty easily. Wet sand with 600 grit on a soft block. Buffing will reduce the scrapes in the crease, too. It won't be a fix, but the spots and gaps that your eye jumps to will be reduced.
Nail Grease - Same thing with the ding in the Beemer. Cleaning it up, then touching in some primer and paint to smooth the color out will make it a lot harder to see unless you're looking closely.
Whether you clean it up as a temporary or not, if you want to get it back to invisible I agree that this is a job for a pro. You would learn a lot about bodywork and paint by tackling this, but decent tools and supplies will cost more than a good shop will charge you to make it go away.
