Hi all - new to the Owners Club and the forum having just purchased a 2007 Element EX with a story and a little cosmetic damage. Apparently the previous owner had a dog (big from the looks of it) that resented the owner leaving it behind and would express that resentment by biting the front wheel wells of the E when the owner was gone. As a result there is some cosmetic damage to the paint - bite/chew marks on the exterior of both front wheel well panels. My question is do I (1) take it to a body shop to have the panels sanded and repainted (any guess at cost?) (2) replace the panels (cost? and source suggestions?) or (3) leave it and modify the story to a wolf/shark/piranha attack. The last option reminding me of the 2007 ad campaign. . .
