phwoar what happened to the FBT, sounds like you have some nice cars in your family.

Gutter rash can be repaired by experts quite well from what ive told not exactly cheap, but then again either are original EL GT rims might be best to get someone to repair them, looks like daniel has suggested a good place.

shop around gets some quotes etc

have you got a close up of the damage?

most spray shops will do it for about $65-100 for you

but remember, it'll end up bein shaved down and filed and then sanded and possibly filled and resprayed.. not noticable unless you look REALLY REALLY close or can tell is a bit different shaped

so try a few spray painters aroundt he place
