Ooops!

Well, this kinda blows... I backed into my mom's car. Didn't leave but a small dent in her car, and my back bumper is all scuffed up now, but still, I have a scuffed up back bumper. My mom said don't worry bout it, just a little dent and small paint chip.

Anyone know how to get scuff marks out of paint?

Rubbing compound/Polishing compound and some good ole elbow grease.

paint scuffs.. when i used to work at a body shop we used to use lacquer.. or paint thinner.. just put some on a rag and rub real quick and its gone.. but too much can eat the clear coat.. then just buff it out to get the shine back =)

sometimes a good clean rag, with a cleaning agent and something hard to press down with can get it off, but thats mainly to get the OTHER cars paint off of your paint..... your just scrapping it off with something hard, like a kitchen spoon..... and the rag saves you from actually scratching your own paint and use whatever cleaning solution is safe for the car.
