Toyota Tacoma, Exterior, Truck

To add to the Taco paint chips being repainted this month, mothernature decided that I shouldn't have a 2003 Taco without some new dents. Hail.
$1500 damage. Good news: they are going to massage the bumps out. The adjuster stated that all of them should be gone. Body shop stated the paint chips are no problem....So maybe after owning this truck for 5 months, I might finally get what I paid for? What a pain.

That might be the solution. Maybe I should spend a vacation in tornado alley.

The body shop is going to lightly sand the bed where the paint chips are and then paint over the green paint. This way they don't sand the original factory paint off the truck. Then the entire outside left and right side of the bed gets a clearcoat. Bedliner comes out, tail lamp removed, and the bumper is off. Toyota gets the bill.
Hail bumps are massaged out.
