    Default Our lass hit a skip!!!

    oh yes i recieved that dreaded phone call from the wife 'i've hit a skip with the car' i thought i'd play it cool and try to be understanding,that lasted all of 10 seconds.Anyway to the damage it was'nt as bad as i feared,it was just a glancing blow with the plastic lights on the side of the skip.

    I now have two lovely yellow marks on both my nearside door handles(see pic).I've tried using a cloth hot water and elbow grease but you can see what remains.

    What is the best way to get rid of these marks please?

    Try some bug and tar remover, clay or meg's scratch x, I imagine that one of these will work. Oh yeah and get her to do it and make sure you supervise her

    Have you got this sorted mate. Where abouts are you exactly. I'm in Hull and have got loads of detailing products and a PC (proper machine polisher) that should fix that in no time. If you need help let me know and I'd be happy to sort it.
