Got home, a little Bug and Tar, with some Meguires cream buff stuff. You'd never know that white paint was ever there.
So you made your car take a scratch instead of back up and try again??

Jason

It was either the bumper which is not an option or a plastic mirror that I can fix. I take it you have never been in Toronto u/g parking lots

You make an error in judgement, and you're fuct. I was in a hurry too, a bunch of "bunnied eared" girls had just arrived via bus at Seven Lounge...nuff said

Easy to take dings out... *my wife drives 2 dark colored cars* so I know How to get those dings and creases out. because there newish cars they have thin metel so tey ding and crease easy. All you have to do is get a propane torch and ***CARFULLY*** heat up the area... slowly... then just tap it with a soft headed malet and the little ding from a door or what ever with just pop out..

-If I ever go shopping and its not just to get coke at the drug mart.. I'll just park in the middle of 3 or 4 stalls.. for a 25dollar ticket its not a big deal... i think ive only gotta like 3...
ive been trying to teach this act to my wife, because she just about all the time she goes to the mall I have to do dent repair from inconsiderate people and they doors.

I hate people that do that! If you're that worried, park in the empty part of the lot with me or leave it at home
