Also, there are a few (OK, more than a few) scratches along the sides which appear only to have scrateched the plasticote (or whatever) and can be buffed out to remove the aluminum oxide and then recoated presumably by spraying. Ditto the paint stripe. Is there a stabndard source for the paint stripe color paints, and can they be purchased in small amounts, like a pint, or better yet, a paint stick??
Pictures would really help with the exact location, and size of the dent. Is the dent creased? Is it near a seam? Is it part of a series of dents or a solo? These and more are the questions needed to be answered before a really good answer can be given. I have taken dents out with no more than a suction cup, others I have had to push out from the inside and then there are those that require the old rivet and pull method. Finally there is the name your dent method for the impossible ones.
As for the paint match my 280 has a grey trim and I have used Rust-OLeum Dark Gray for a match it is available in both spray and cans. The clear coat is more of a problem. The best I have come up with is a product by Krylon #1313 Clear Satin Finish. Make certain all wax has been removed prior to spraying and protect from overspray since that will peel off. Several light coats work better than one heavy coat, even then this is not perfect.
Good luck with your project.
