I think they used rocks... i don't think it's just surface,because after i clean it up i can still see it,especially under the sun...

You can use polishing compound just be very gentle & carefully read the instructions. After you use the polishing compound be sure you wash the paint thoroughly. Then apply high quality wax then let it sit if possible overnight. Then wipe it off. If you can see bare metal be sure you touch it up with the proper touch up paint ASAP. Let us know.

You're welcome! Not sure about the insurance. Ask around just be very careful as check with many people you know. As if you claim this to insurance be sure that your rates won't go up for the next few years. As I know a lot of insurance companies are not the most honest. They are sneaky they say that your insurance rates won't increase but as time goes by they will increase it slowly to recuperate from what they paid you for claiming something. Even if its not your fault.

@honda4life and Apdluu : I do not know which kids did that so i can't kill the parents. plus if i kill the parents, my police report won't look good on me :D
To file a police report,i will have to drive 2 hours away to the camping site..

And after you pay 460 alot if.not most will be there I bet and you will pay more for them to paint it.

In the end, I bet it needs painted.

Id call the police there. The internet is a great thing and you seem to have plenty of pictures you can send them for the report.

Or just pay for it all out of pocket. That way deductables wont go up.

It looks like it can be buffed out. After they successfully buff it out, I would suggest to wax it to protect the paint.

I detail cars and I can tell you if you can run your nail along it and it drops into the scratch its never gonna come out it needs painted otherwise if it doesn't you could use the process on it. Probably needs wet sanded if it's as bad as it sounds

Probably the clear coat is scratched off, and no matter what you do now you'll be able to see the marks. And eventually it will fade and be even more noticeable. It needs to be sanded down, touched up, and re-clear coated. If you know a good body guy/gal they could do it for you for a couple hundred bucks probably, and save you an insurance claim.

But I think you should talk to your insurance agent. I don't know who otto deals with, but I've had State Farm for 40 years and they've always treated me very fairly. Just don't be a jerk and make up some sort of "accident", just tell your agent what happened, pay the deductible and move on. On the other hand, I guess if I was in the habit of lying to my insurance company I wouldn't trust them to be honest with me either. It's a two-way kind of thing.
