Wouldn't drive it for the first 2 months as the car was too "new" for her and was scared. Didn't take long for her to do some damage. Currently getting quotes.. might just try and get a take off from a local dealership.

Curious to know what quotes you're getting as it doesn't seem that bad, even if touched up in the most professional way possible.

I'm guessing at most it will be $100 and they will come to my place of work and do it. Otherwise I'm sure I can sand it down myself and do some touch up paint. But for $100 I'd rather have it professionally done and look good.

If you can get someone to do it for $100 that's not bad at all. Looks like a quick fix.

That's crazy for a scrape like that. Are you going to get an estimate from somewhere else?
Yeah, I got another place getting me a quote but they want to see the Rim and I haven't had a chance to get there with the GM strike my work schedule has been crazy. Hopefully since that has ended that it doesn't take too long for GM to get caught back up.

Also have the dealership I bought the Blazer at looking for a take off Rim that I could grab from him if the price is right.

Can you get touch up paint for that? Seems it won't be long before more damage, unless she learns to use the cameras. Those cameras should come on automagicly when below 5 mph.

She was parallel parking and said the curb was broken and had a piece of concrete sticking out that just happen to hit the rim perfect when she was parking. She even took a picture of the curb.. 😂.

Found some kits on Amazon that come with sandpaper and filler. I can easily get touch up paint to match the rim but I'm not an expert at this so I'm sure my first time wouldn't be up to my standards of how I want it too be done so I'd rather pay the extra $$ to have it done by someone that has experience.

I hear ya, I'd rather spend the extra bit of money as well, I can't trust myself with stuff like that haha. If your dealer has an extra rim that's definitely an easy solution too.
