Default removing paint

The wife backed in to my Bonne last night and put a crease in the front fender and door on the pasenger side, because my car is black the crease doesn't look too bad, but I want to try to buff out or remove as much of the paint that got swapped. Her car is grey so there is a streak of grey in my paint job. Any detailing tricks or products I could buy to help remove as much as possible? Thanks.

Luckily she didn't crack the fender! I've had great luck with 'Bug and Tar Remover' when removing paint marks. It'* usually worked for me when the paint marks weren't extremely deep. Depending on your situation, it may remove some.

Ya know, I once had blue paint on my silver sebring and I took nail-polish remover and that did the trick. Not sure if it would be recommended but it worked, and didnt mess up my clear-coat.

You can try a claybar to take off the grey paint.

Congrats on getting the paint off. That B&T remover is great stuff. Your scuff marks can probably be buffed out.
