Unhappy Paint Scrapes

I had a bike rack on my car and the bike touched the car and ruined the paint bad. I was just going to buy touch up paint on put that on. What would be the best way to fix these spots?

A professional paint shop.

Those are pretty deep scratches down to the base coat, and they are quite big.

Sorry.

I would get a repaint or if you want to go wingless, just get a new trunk. That's what I would do because I prefer wingless

That's actually cracked paint as well as the chips, there's no way to fix that without painting the whole panel. If you wait too long, the paint will start flaking off further and you'll start seeing a lot of rust build up. If you can't get it painted, you want to make sure that you at least put a rust preventative on it and touch it up. Get a razor and scrape off the paint that's already flaking before you touch it up though. Good luck
