Paint and fix or wait??

I decided that I would have the paint on my car fixed this summer. I was planning on going home, prepping the car, and taking it somewhere to have the most of the car repainted. Bad paint I was going to have that area, if not the whole side and the front bumper (possibly swithcing to a 96 front) done too. Well the other day I go out to my car and see that someone drilled the side of my car with their door right below the peelled paint.
Now what should I do, the car has 158,000 miles on, needs no other real work needed. Should I continue to save for the paint or should I keep her as she is and just not worry about it?

go ahead and get the paint freshened up, wouldn't hurt, lol, that's what i'd do because my car's paint sux bad, silver doesn't weather very well in the texas sun, but before you get it painted, be absolutely sure you are not going to add anything else that needs paint, like a hood, or gfx, but whatever you do, you need to get it done by a reputable shop, later'z.....
