Bumper Scraped

Hey I got nicked in my back bumper by another car (of course it happened when I was parked) but there are a few small marks. Some people huh...Faded white on my black car along with some scrapes which I think go through my clear coat, but not all the way through my paint. Is there a way to buff this out by hand? I was thinking about using some polish and then cleaner wax, followed by some regular wax. Any suggestions???[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/IMG]

civicdude will become famous soon enough
You can try using rubbing compound. Make sure that it is clear coat compatible, or it will scratch the paint. After you get out the marks go over the spot with wax.

brill is just really nicebrill is just really nicebrill is just really nicebrill is just really nice
heya - the exact same thing happened to me - total hit n' run - didn't notice it until I washed my car (but didn't wax it) and all the sudden something didn't shine the same as the rest!

Anyways... I waxed over it recently... it's still there - but very VERY hard to see - and im pretty convinced no one will see if unless they know its there... I used meguiars 3 step.
