That sucks when someone messes with your ride like that Roots, sorry to hear it.
I'm guessing that since you're talking re-finish that the scratch is too deep to buff out?
I'm no body and paint guy, but off the top, I'd say touch up vs. painting the whole door is dependent on the scratch depth, location and how old the surrounding paint is.
Tougher to match up paint on a vehicle that's several years old and has some fading, as opposed to a newer truck.
Another sad fact is that insurance may not be worth the trouble of making a claim on your record.
Post up a pic if you have a chance and that might give folks a better idea of where to guide you.
