I was removing some broken-down boxes from 0685 when the stack slipped and hit the rear bumper cover. Now, I have several dull lines on the topside of my rear bumper cover. They are not really scatches just marks. Does anyone know how to remove them. This is driving me insane. I have heard that a claybar is good for this but wanted to ask before I moved on it.

Thanks

Aaron, it shouldn't cost more than $35 bucks for a body shop to buff out your bumper.

I have the same advice, Takeit to a good good body shop and have them do it for you

I would give a scratch and swirl removal
wax a shot such as 3Ms product. Meguires,
Mother's, etc. have similar products.
I bet Zaino does too. A clay bar may work
also. A good cleaner wax may be all you
need too, they are less abrasive than a
scratch and swirl removal wax.
If these don't work, like the Bullitt-
heads above said, a GOOD body shop.
Good luck! I feel your pain.
Let us know how it works out.

BTW, I don't know what brand clay bar you
have but the one I have (Griot's Garage)
recommends using a lubricant between the
clay and the clearcoat. Fogging (micro
scratches) can result if the lubricant is
not used. The lubricant can be water but I
use Griot's Speedshine...works great.

Collin, Just wax it. If you didn't knock the paint off it should be fine.

Yeah just wax it first. That should take most or all of it out. If not then you can buff it. It's very easy.

Sounds pretty lite. If it does not wax out, you can use a light polishing compund and rub it by hadn. Another trick we used on the show cars was the polish like Mirror Glaze #7 with a little corn starch in it. This would be just enough abrasive to get the job done.

Good luck.
