i couldn't find any diy on our forum, but i found this:


A guy on a dodge forum did it the "cheap way" by essentially using a lot of touch up paint, and it surprisingly hid the scratch quite well. Usually though, with a scratch this deep, I dont think you should expect perfect results if you diy, in many cases if its really severe, you may have to get the whole panel re-painted.
