ya i know its been done before

I know there have been many posts about fixing scratches and dents, but I just wanted to post pics so I can get specifics, I too scared to touch my baby with something that could ruin it!


This is supposed to be a small dent, there is a pebble ingrained in the dent it made.


Yes, someone went through my car to get out of a parking space. Waaaaaaaa

For the scratch, go over it lightly with 1500-2000 WET sandpaper. Then use some rubbing compound and give it a polish and a wax.

Thata a great idea with the sandpaper thing. I usually do this, and then use some of that "scratch-X" or other scratch stuff instead of wax...it looks good afterwords.

I use scratch ex products... among some others... some of the gouges are from the previous owner, and I have tried everything to get them out. Oh well, she still shines!

Won't using sandpaper take the paint off? Or do the bumpers even have paint? Say I use the sandpaper, sand that area down, then just put on some polish and scratch-x/wax?
