    Body shop for the hood (or buy the color matched paint and DIY if you feel comfortable with that)
    The gasket I wouldnt have a clue where to start, but I'm sure if i re-searched Google, and Youtube well enough I could figure it out....or if I asked my wife...because women tend to think they know everything. :D

    Looks like that was done in a parking lot and someone used your truck to hold something.

    Yea, Like at Home Depot. Temporarily stacked some bricks on your hood while they fumbled in their pockets for the keys to their Prius.

    Yep. Had a similar set of scratches on the side of my Tacoma where some jackwipe leaned their crap against me while fingering their hole. I always park way the hell out in the nether regions of parking lots too, but even that didn't stop it from happening.

    Good deal on the gasket. Figured the dealer would jam you for $30.

    Unless you use your truck exclusively on a farm or something, small damages are likely to occur. I just don't get bent out of shape. I usually park sufficiently away from heavily used lots. But I don't park way out there either. That's also asking for trouble.

    I would agree with Tuna813, my daughter put some scratches like that on the trunk of her car by setting a basket of clothes there while she unlocked her car.I found it hard to believe a laundry basket could cause that much damage, but that was her story and she stuck to it!

    I have to drive thru a lot of sage brush on my property and it does wonders on the paint. Most scratches are superficial and wax out. Some don't. Same thing with my 09 Tacoma. Biggest gripe with Toyota is the paint finish or lack of.

    2500 grit wet sand, polishing compound, wax, in that order. Make sure it's polishing compound not rubbing compound. Search YouTube for detailed instructions.
