Default How to get scuffs out really well?

Last night, I got rearended by a girl in a Camry. It was kinda hard but not hard enough to cause severe damages however, there'* some nasty gouges and chips and a lot of scuffs. The chips and gouges will be touched up (thank god for silver) but the question is I have a lot of scuff on the bumper, do I simply just wax it? Or is there a special procedure that I didnt know about?

Perhaps I made it sound worse than it really was. It'* not that bad visually, you'll have to get close to really see it plus she was hot and I got distracted. So I told her it'* fine and left.

I've had great success with the Mr Clean Magic Eraser for removing paint scuffs (someone else'* red paint on top of my clearcoat). So if you're in a similar situation I'd try it. They cost like $3 for a 2-pack.

I would suggest not using that. the whole concept of the eraser is not one I would reccoment for auto paint.

I would suggest you get some buffing compund and a wax pad.

damn dude i feel ur pain..

last week, i got hit by a chick going in reverse (backing out of her building)..with a
white beetle... i saw she was comming out way too fast, and i guess she wasnt looking either..
WHHHHHACK her back bumper hit my front bumper..
i was like WWWWWTTTTTTFFFFF.. till i reliased it was a chick.

came out looked that there was no damage execpt for a white swipe of paint..
looked back at her and realised she was about to cry..
got in my car and left.

I got a rag and carwash was able to get the paint off.. but not the little scratches that came with it.

So Cody did you get her phone number?

Corvette Crazy has the right idea.

Post a decent pic of the damage and I should be able to help you out.
