Default Paint scuff

So someone threw something at my car and scuffed the paint on the roof. The scuff is about the size of a dime. Any idea what it's going to cost to repaint the roof and where a good place to go would be?

At first I was going to say vinyl wrap the roof, but if it's down to bare metal that changes things.

I think Fast Eddie's is widely regarded as one of the best in the city. I can't vouch for anyone really because all of my experiences with other shops have been bad.

Thanks I'll definitely check them out. The fact that you haven't had a good experience makes me uneasy

Oh Fast Eddie's is in Cincinnati. I was looking for a place in Columbus. I guess I should've said that ha

Be prepared for a wait to get in, and it'll take forever but I wouldn't take my car anywhere else, esp with black where every mistake in the prep process will show in the end product.

They fixed my Audi like 7 years ago now. Knew I was extremely picky and met my expectations without issue.
