    Post Arghhhh just scratched my passenger side rear arch area!

    Some prat had blocked me in so reversed back, being impatient and having to get back to a job, only to remember that the wall I was next to had a curve in it just past the rear of my car,

    Horrible scraping noise for a split second, and now gouged down to the plastic, ive sanded the gouge on the bumper and used a s**tty VX touch up stick to cover the area (notice the total mismatch on colour, even though its the same one I used last time and it was shaken)

    Anyone got any advice on making it look a bit better? I was thinking of sanding it back a little with body shop wet and dry then, going over area again, the front area where someone scraped me ages ago is almost invisible, this sticks out like a sore thumb!!!

    Any advice appreciated (other than the sarcastic one of use your damn mirrors next time)

    cheers ste

    try that colour coded polish and the colour stick (its a bit like a crayon)
    rubbing it down with wet and dry might make it worse

    I'd use a SMART repair firm, someone like ChipsAway. It's not normally a massive cost and should be possible to repair back to new.
