Newbie here, so if this has been posted elsewhere, I apologize in advance. Just didn't see it on the first page of this forum.
My car is almost a year old and though I've done everything in my power to avoid "door dings, etc., " I still have about three issues that I'd like to fix if possible. One is something I did myself, getting stuff out of the backdoor. Sort of a flat marring of the paint from my clothes or purse. Just wondering if polishing would get this out. As I understand it, polish has a bit of abrasive in it (as opposed to wax).
Second major issue is a "slice" in the front bumper. I try to parallel park here at work, but people here park pretty badly, so folks (myself included) have to go back and forth to get out of their spots later. I think I'm bright enough to know if I "nudged" someone else, so I'm thinking someone backed up into me and caused this place on the bumper. Since it'* rubber/fiberglass or whatever they're made out of these days, buffing it won't take it out. Is there anyway something like this can be fixed? I'm thinking touch-up paint is probably the only solution.
My third issue is an actual door ding that I got when I got lazy and broke my own rule about not parking "way out" at the grocery store. There'* an actual chip on the door. Not sure if anything can be done about this.
Any advice you guys can give me on these issues would be greatly appreciated. It figures I parallel park to avoid door dings and someone backs into my front bumper and causes a worse problem.
