A body shop professionally. Trying DIY you may end up with a badly scratched surface which needs professional repair anyway, so don't make it any worse than it already is.

I like the way the OP is more worried about the paintwork than having no brakes.

Do we presume the brake pads and possibly discs have been replaced?
