Aghhhhhh not cool. Best thing to do it get some factory touch up and cover it quick before any rust sets it there hopefully. Only other way OD to paint the bed.

I have fixed these before. It isn't pleasant! First when a car or truck is keyed the damage isn't just paint. It also scratches the sheet metal too!! So what has to happen it the scratch needs to be filled! then the surface painted. So if you can't do it right now like charged392 said get the touch up paint to keep it from rusting but make sure to get the kind of touch up paint that has clear too. just the color alone wont keep it from rusting. you need the clear to keep the the water out!

One of those mobile touch up dent puller guys that do the repairs in parking lots can do a really good job from what I've seen. Used car lots also use them to do minor repairs on the cars they are offering.

Speak of the devil. had an idiot back into my drivers door last Friday at the supermarket. put a dent about 6 inches in diameter just below the horizontal plastic dado line which Has a bend in it, but hoping its not stressed. Got a date with the dent magician tomorrow. He charges $200 a panel. my insurance excess is $500 so its on me. I hope he has his wand charged up.
