As difficult as it may be, if you want to catch the culprits who did this and make them pay. Leave the truck out again (before you get it fixed of course) set up a video camera and lay in wait to catch them on tape. If you take that to the parents first (if they are decent parents) little Johnny and his fiend crew may be raked over the coals by their parents for years to come and learn a valuable life lesson. If that doesn't get the result you want in response from the parents, then take it to the cops and press charges. Either way these kids won't learn with out some consequences. Just kicked one of my boys out of the house so he could learn some consequences as he didn't want to listen to my advise. Kids now a days are so self righteous. But that is what our society has taught them, it's really not all their fault.

Abe,
Glad the damage wasn't any worse. I was scared to read this also, but it sounds like you and your insurance have it under control.
I also use State Farm for my home and vehicles. I few years back when mine was on the road, it cost $72 a year for full coverage. When I was rear-ended, they came out to the house and did an estimate just in case the other guy's insurance wouldn't cover it. They gave great service and good advice through the whole ordeal.

Good Luck!

Like the others, my heart sank when I read the title to this thread. I pictured the worst and pictured your gorgeous truck all smashed up. I'm very glad thats not the case.

A short while back I got nailed with paintballs. My daily drivers were each hit about a half dozen times. I saw it first thing in the morning, the paint wasn't even dry yet and was able to wash it off without any ill effects. I have teenage kids so I'm sure it was some for of retaliation from some kid they teed off somewhere

Good luck with the repairs
Bobby
