  • Met a concrete post - car lost

    I managed to cut it too fine in an underground garage. No metal displacement but a noticeable transfer of concrete to the metal. It seems to be concrete on top of the paint rather than paint scratched off. Is there a method(s) to rub off the concrete smear while minimally affecting the paint job? Better to just leave it alone?

      Try some clay bar.

            I find it hard to believe that there is no damage to the paint. You must have just kissed it.

              Clay bar works great for stuff like that. Use lots of soapy liquid and light pressure. JR

                Nothing drives me more crazy than those tiny little road particles stuck on the clear coat.

                  Muriatic acid will take it right off, but is kinda ugly stuff to work with. Surprisingly, it won't hurt the paint on the car.

                    Leave it alone. As my daughter pointed out, who will steal and/or strip a car that looks like that?

                      Get it sorted before it breeds. Just don't try to knock out the dent like Father Ted

                        Return to the same underground garage, find a car of the same color and cut too fine around it.

                          Met a deer last week - windshield and driver side mirror lost.

                          Everything's fixed already. Windshield the next day and mirror the day after that. Luckily there is only a very small dent in the door which is barely noticeable so no body work required. Total cost ~ $300 because I had dropped the comprehensive just last year. The damn thing hit me right in front of the driver's side windshield and then flew over the top of the car without hitting the roof. If it had gone THROUGH the windshield I'd probably be in a hospital right now or the morgue. I was moving at about 45 MPH and if the deer hadn't killed me the resulting accident probably would have.

                            Gave it a wash & looks a lot better. Thanks, Duffy, for a great perspective.
